Alzheimer’s Research UK has welcomed a call for people in Wales to take positive steps to reduce their risk of dementia.

It comes as the Welsh Government encourage everyone in Wales to get active to lower their dementia risk.

We welcome the call to action from the Welsh Government and Public Health Wales, and we hope this will encourage people in Wales to take these steps to reduce their risk of dementia. While age is the biggest risk factor for dementia, current evidence also suggests that people can help to reduce their risk by leading a healthy lifestyle. This includes doing regular exercise, not smoking and eating a healthy, balanced diet. It’s also important to monitor blood pressure and cholesterol levels with a GP to keep them in check.
