Dementia is quite a scary condition that affects around 50 million people worldwide, and is projected to increase to 152 million by 2050¹. With an ageing population, case numbers are increasing but it doesn’t mean the onset of dementia is inevitable.
Ageing is inevitable but our quality of life as we get older is something very much within our control. It’s only natural for our bodies to slow down in later years, but the good news is that there are several health and lifestyle factors we can all address to ensure that we’re still able to lead the life we want as we age.
Prof. Livingston will tell us more about how research in the last decades has given a hopeful perspective on the problem of dementia, by highlighting the importance of prevention and will give us helpful tips to reduce those risk factors in our life.
