Elephants & dementia

Bright and early this morning, The ACP Team attended a special breakfast at Melbourne Zoo, which included a special presentation by Alzheimer's Australia. While many animals were having a sleep in, a lone tiger came out to say 'hello'.

As the old saying goes "an elephant never forgets." Sadly many of our elderly will, due to dementia.

The presentation outlined 5 simple steps to maximise brain health and decrease your chance of developing dementia later in life:

  1. Look after your heart
  2. Physical activity
  3. Challenge your brain
  4. Healthy diet
  5. Enjoy social activities
