World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is the international campaign by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, affecting up to 70% of all people with dementia. With almost half a million Australians living with dementia and numbers rising every day, it’s never been more important to raise awareness of the ways exercise, nutrition and other lifestyle factors can help improve brain health and overall wellbeing.
