Reducing the Risk of Dementia

The human brain is one of your most vital organs. It plays a role in every action and every thought, and just like the rest of your body, it needs to be looked after.

Can Alzheimer's disease be prevented? There are no guarantees, but healthy lifestyle choices will help keep your brain as healthy as possible as you age. By making better lifestyle choices now, you can improve your brain's ability to sustain long-term health and fight illnesses.

Learn more about what you can do to maintain or improve your brain health to reduce your risks of dementia. Sessions being offered throughout Oxford County in 2021. (Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual Reducing the Risk sessions will occur throughout the year.)
