New Angles on Dementia is a collection of easy-to-read articles based on hundreds of scientific articles and reports on the disease and a life with dementia.
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 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 book does not offer specific medical advice but provides practical information on topics ranging from exercise, diet, and sleep to senses, sex, and intimacy. These articles can be read independently of each other.
