Who Knew?

By Dr. Uchechi Wosu Isirimah – Owner | July 31, 2017

Dementia affects more than 5 million Americans but a new study in The Lancet shows that 1 in 3 cases of dementia could be prevented. Healthy habits are not only important in protecting against heart disease and diabetes but also dementia. The article cites that dementia is not an illness that will inevitably occur as you age, but just as other illnesses, there are perhaps modifiable health and lifestyle factors that play a role in the development or prevention of dementia. The Lancet Commission on dementia identified the following 7 factors that could modify the underlying disease process:

  1. reducing smoking
  2. treating hypertension
  3. treating diabetes
  4. treating hearing impairment
  5. increasing education in early life
  6. increasing physical activity
  7. increasing social engagement

So, why wait? Act now and put into place healthy behaviors that can potentially ward off a devastating and life altering disease. Remember prevention is always better than cure!

At Brighthope Homecare, our caregivers are trained to address these modifiable factors. If you or your loved one need additional support please contact us at: Or you can visit our website at
