Brain Health Advisory

Did you know? Up to 40% of the lifetime risk factors for dementia can be potentially reduced.

Evidence shows that people who stay active, connected and keep learning new things are less likely to develop dementia.  And for people living with the early stages of dementia, brain health activities may help slow down the progression.

What can you do to prevent or slow down the progression of dementia?

What is good for your heart is good for your brain. Research has shown that there is a relation between heart health and brain health. A healthy cardiovascular health is associated with a lower risk of dementia,

Mentally stimulating activities such as puzzles, crosswords, and learning new skills can help reduce the risk of developing dementia. These activities help to build new brain cells and strengthen connections between them.

What does your Monday afternoon usually look like? For Su, an international student at TAFE SA, it is a time dedicated to volunteering at Healthia Residential Care Home. Su’s creativity and origami skills are well admired by the residents. With origami, you start with a blank piece of paper, and it is up to your intention and skill what you create. It is, in a way, a fitting analogy to describe volunteering.

Su added that she believes if you have a warm heart and a big smile, you have everything you need to start.

Su, you are a true inspiration to many of us at ACH Group. Thank you for connecting with residents through the art of origami, bringing extra kindness and gentleness into their life. 🙌

Thank you for filming me. I’m visiting on Monday because I don’t have a class. So, I became a “Monday girl” 😄 I hope more people will enjoy volunteer work by sharing my story. 💕
