This book is written for anyone around the age of 50, regardless of their current health!

Dementia is the third leading cause of death in the Western world and the primary cause of people’s loss of independence. One in six women and one in ten men over the age of 50 will get dementia in the next two decades. 

Given that dementia is an incurable and irreversible disease starting as early as late 40s/early 50s, a person doesn’t know if the disease is developing until he/she gets the diagnosis decades later. At that time, there’s little or nothing that can be done about it! 

However,a number of lifestyle factors can delay the onset or perhaps eliminate the risk of getting dementia entirely, and the book empowers the reader with the knowledge to improve the odds of not getting the disease, or, in case he/she gets it or already has it, get the best possible quality of life in the given circumstances.

The Dementia Handbook is a collection of easy-to-read articles based on more than 100 scientific articles and reports on the disease and a life with dementia. It does not offer specific medical advice but provides practical information on topics ranging from exercise, diet, and sleep to all our senses, sex, and intimacy. These articles can be read independently of each other.
