Dementia is not a normal part of ageing.

A 10-25% reduction in risk factors can potentially prevent as many as 1.1 – 3.0 million cases worldwide.4

Cognitive health disorders are increasing at a rapid rate with the number of Australians with dementia predicted to more than double by the year 20581

  • In 2021 it is estimated between 386,200 and 472,000 Australians are living with dementia1
  • 2 in 3 people with dementia are thought to be living in the community1
  • Dementia is the second leading cause of death of Australians2
  • The prevalence of dementia is projected to reach 900,000 by 2050 – three quarters of a million Australians!4

While we cannot change getting older, genetics or family history, scientific research suggests that changing certain health and lifestyle habits reduce or delay risk of developing cognitive health conditions.

Curious as to what’s causing this rapid rise? Want to be a proactive force in changing these shocking statistics?

Join leading NEM experts in this evidence-informed specialty area of cognitive health. This on-demand learning module releasing on 25th August 2022 explores how to adopt a preventive approach to reducing the long-term impact of cognitive disorders.
