Engaging in fun activities that create positive stimulation to the brain—in addition to mental exercises—may prevent or delay the onset of dementia.

In recent years, numerous studies have shown that changes in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients may occur many years before symptoms appear. Therefore, preventive measures against cognitive decline should not wait until old age. Experts recommend initiating preventive strategies from the age of 40 to minimize the risk.
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly over time, and it is the most common form of dementia. In the United States, around 6.7 million individuals aged 65 and older have Alzheimer’s disease, and over 70 percent of them are 75 years and older.
Currently, over 55 million people worldwide suffer from dementia, with nearly 10 million new cases each year. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for approximately 60 to 70 percent of these cases. Dementia ranks as the seventh leading global cause of death and is one of the primary causes of disability and dependency among the elderly.
