Dementia Prevention Strategies

As Alzheimer’s disease begins to develop in the brain decades before the symptoms of memory loss become obvious, there are actions people can take now to reduce their risk of dementia – regardless of their age.

These 15 prevention strategies, recommended by Dr. Howard Chertkow, Chair in Cognitive Neurology and Innovation at Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute and Scientific Director of Canada’s largest dementia research network, the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging, could potentially slow cognitive decline and prevent various forms of dementia.
