Title: Top Myths of Dementia

Top Myths of Dementia
  • Dementia is a topic that isnt talked about
    often, but it should be. There are many things we
    know about dementia and one of those things is
    that dementia is increasing at an alarming rate.
    But there is still some misunderstood information
    out there about dementia.

  • Top 4 Myths of Dementia
  • Dementia is a natural part of aging
  • FALSE! Dementia is NOT a natural part of
    aging. Not every person who grows old will
    experience dementia. Dementia is a medical
    condition that not everyone gets. There happens
    to be millions of people that age without seeing
    their memory decline. However, dementia rates do
    increase with age, but people as young as their
    30s can get dementia.

  • Dementia only occurs in elderly people
  • FALSE! Dementia can happen to anyone at any
    age. It is more common in elderly people, but
    dementia can also be the result of a stroke or
    brain damage from a head injury. People in their
    30s and 40s have been diagnose with dementia so
    it is important to start doing things to mitigate
    dementia at any age.

  • There is nothing you can do to lower the risk of
    getting dementia
  • FALSE! There are things you can do to lower the
    risk of getting dementia. There is no cure, but
    dementia is a disease that progresses, so there
    are steps to take to slow down the progress of
    dementia. Learning new and novel things will
    release glutamate which will aide in keeping your
    brain strong and preventing memory loss. Just
    like working out your body, you need to work out
    your brain. Research has shown that participating
    in learning new things and using your mental
    abilities through playing brain games, like SMART
    Brain Agings Brain U Online, can decrease the
    risk of developing dementia.

  • There is nothing you can do once you get dementia
  • FALSE! There are things you can do to help you
    slow down the progression of dementia and help
    you live your life to the fullest. Since dementia
    is a progressive disease, you can do things to
    help slow it down. This will help make life
    easier on people who suffer from early onset
    dementia. Especially with the help of SMART Brain
    Agings trained employees, dementia sufferers
    will be able to live the quality of life they
  • Dementia is a tricky disease that we continue
    to study and learn about. Until we find a cure,
    the least we can do is spread awareness about
    dementia and inform others on how to mitigate it.
