Tips to boost brain health and lower dementia risk

You may be able to help keep your brain in shape, not just the rest of your body. A large study in France suggests that delaying retirement and working until later in life may help prevent dementia.

Some other things the Alzheimer’s Association suggests for healthy aging:

Stay active: Many studies show exercise reduces dementia risk.

Stay connected: join a club, travel, volunteer. Social ties boost brain health.

Eat right: High cholesterol may contribute to stroke and brain-cell damage, while dark vegetables and fruits may help protect brain cells.

Do mentally challenging activities: such as word puzzles and other things that stimulate thinking skills.
