5 out of every 100 elderly in India
have Dementia.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia and accounts for 50%-75% of all dementia cases. It destroys brain cells and nerves disrupting the transmitters which carry messages in the brain, particularly those responsible for storing memories.

Dementia affects every individual differently, no two cases of dementia will be the same. However, some points of commonality include memory loss, loss of practical abilities which results in the individual withdrawing from work and other daily tasks.
While there is no cure for dementia at the moment, there is rigorous research that is being undertaken to find a cure for the illness. However, one way to reduce the risk of developing dementia is to engage in behaviours that are healthy for your physical health as well as your mental health.
There are no drugs that can be used to treat Alzheimer’s in itself, but there are several drugs that are often prescribed to treat the various symptoms and to slow the progression of the illness. It is recommended that people living with dementia, as well as their caregivers and family members seek appropriate support for the condition.
Although it is known that the risk of dementia increases with age, there is no fixed means of preventing it. However, a healthy lifestyle, a balanced diet, and sufficient physical and mental activity are recommended, since there is significant research to suggest that a healthy lifestyle helps reduce risk.
