Around the world, approximately 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. In the USA, over 5 million people have age-related dementias. The figure in Canada is well over half a million.
Alzheimer’s is a disease that attacks the brain, affecting memory, thinking, behavior and personality, and ultimately causing death. Dementia is a general term referring to a severe decline in mental ability that gets in the way of daily life. A number of diseases can cause dementia, including Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and vascular issues. However, Alzheimer’s may account for 60 – 80 percent of dementia cases.
The month of June brings awareness to Alzheimer’s disease and its effect on the brain, slowly diminishing people’s cognitive abilities and quality of life over time. As the leading voluntary health organization in care, support and research, the Alzheimer’s Association promotes four categories of lifestyle habits that people can put into practice as they age:
1. Diet and nutrition
2. Cognitive activity
3. Social engagement
4. Physical health and exercise
These lifestyle habits have been determined to be effective for aging well because research indicates that the combination of good nutrition and mental, social and physical activities may have a greater benefit in maintaining or improving brain health than any single activity. 1
