SEPTEMBER- DEMENTIA AWARENESS MONTH

What is dementia?

Dementia describes a collection of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain. It is not one specific disease. Dementia affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Brain function is affected enough to interfere with the person’s normal social or working life.

Dementia is not a normal part of ageing . It is a chronic, progressive and terminal disease.

 Get started by joining the brain health challenge (link is external) today!

Your Brain Matters (link is external) is Dementia Australia’s brain health program, designed to help Australians live a brain healthy life. As part of the program we encourage you to take up the Brain Health Challenge (link is external) for 21 Days.

We have also developed an App to assist in monitoring your brain health. Available for Android and Apple smart phones, download BrainyApp today to help you on your way to a brain healthy lifestyle.

There are three key areas to help you live a brain healthy life: look after your Brain, Body and Heart.

All these are important in looking after your brain health.

Following the Your Brain Matters guide is particularly important once you reach middle age, as this is when changes in the brain start to occur. But it’s even better if you follow them throughout life. It’s never too late either, as brain function can be improved at any age.
