It’s predicted that there will be almost one million Australians with dementia by 2050 and 10 times as many family members and friends indirectly impacted by its effects. While this is a challenge, there are some simple steps to take to age well and reduce the risk of dementia. 

CEPAR Deputy Director Professor Kaarin Anstey is a world leader in cognitive impairment and dementia research and the keynote speaker at a series of Ageing Well for Life seminars, hosted by Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), aimed at increasing community understanding of dementia risks.

The Ageing Well for Life seminars were held in Sydney, Melbourne and online, with Professor Kaarin Anstey discussing lifestyle factors that can lead to dementia and the steps one can take to reduce the risk. Watch her talk now online.
