Do you often get stressed? Did you know it can lead to demensia? Dr Kailas Roberts shares some incredible insight on this topic and how managing stress is critical to a healthy mind.
Over 400,000 Australians are currently living with dementia, yet misunderstanding about the condition is widespread. Few people realise they can take action to lessen their chances of it developing...there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of dementia, to delay its onset, and to ease the journey if the condition does occur. There are also effective interventions and treatments now available to address dementia-related symptoms. Dr Kailas Roberts, a consultant psychiatrist and psychogeriatrician with over ten years’ experience in the field of old-age psychiatry, works as a specialist in memory loss and dementia. In his book, Mind Your Brain he brings a wealth of knowledge from his medical practice and presents it in plain and accessible language. He explains how dementia affects the brain and body, what to expect in the event of a diagnosis, and how to manage each step along the way. He’ll also talk about the app he created that allows you to quickly find out what you might need to address - whether it be lifestyle choices, medications or other problematic medical conditions. Join us for this important talk which will hopefully be invaluable for anyone that knows someone with dementia, their carers and loved ones, and for anyone who wants to maintain a healthy brain.
