Brain Awareness Month

On the last day of National Brain Awareness Month (March),

“Dementia is a general term that refers to a variety of brain disorders. More than 70,000 British Columbians have dementia of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form. The risk of dementia doubles every five years after age 65 but the disease can strike people as young as 40. Evidence shows that changes in the brain that lead to dementia can begin up to 25 years before symptoms appear.”

“That’s even more reason to take charge of your brain health. It’s never too late or too soon. Learn more about maintaining and improving your brain health.”
