Dodging Dementia
Many of us don’t realize there are things we can do to mitigate the risk of dementia. Whether you have a close relative with dementia, a history of high-risk factors for this condition, or a diagnosis of MCI (mild cognitive impairment), you may be concerned to know how personally 'at risk' you or a loved one is, and what you can do to 'dodge' what is definitely not inevitable. Mary Jordan guides readers through the many factors associated with developing dementia and the science behind our current understanding including diet, exercise, trauma, pharmaceuticals, genetics, social isolation just to name a few. She is a director and founder of Adapt Dementia Ltd formed to help people find a better way to live with dementia. She has specific first hand experience of dementia through her work for Alzheimer’s Society, a UK dementia charity and co-authored the award-winning:End of Life, The Essential Guide to Caring.
