‚ÄčIt is never too late to introduce healthy living choices

Client and caregiver groups told us that they wanted to know what they could do to reduce their personal risk for developing a dementia, or if they already had a diagnosis of dementia, what they could do to slow down the losses associated with the disease.

The good news is that it is never too late to introduce healthy living choices!
