✅ Epidemiological studies show initial evidence that engaging in cognitively stimulating activities might benefit cognition and reduce dementia risk, suggesting that cognitive reserve is not a static property. Ongoing education and engaging in cognitively stimulating activities might continue to increase cognitive reserve and, thus, improve cognitive performance.

✅ Smoking contributes to many dementia-related risk factors, and quitting smoking reduces the risk for dementia. Moderate amounts of alcohol are not harmful for brain health, but alcohol consumption should be as low as possible, particularly in older age. High-level alcohol consumption increases the risk for dementia.

✅ A healthy diet is key for the prevention of many chronic diseases. Individuals who adhere to a Mediterranean diet or other healthy dietary patterns characterized by high intake of fruit, vegetables, whole grain and fish, and low intake of red meat are less likely to have cognitive impairment.
A healthy diet also prevents vascular disease and, thus, diet can affect brain health by lowering a number of different risk factors.

✅ Social interaction and social contacts are important stimulants for cognition. There is growing evidence that social isolation is a risk factor for dementia, which highlights the importance of considering the social engagement of older people and not only their physical and mental health. However, sometimes social isolation might be a prodrome or a part of the dementia syndrome, so early intervention is important.

La ricerca scientifica nel campo della #demenza trae enorme beneficio dal contributo di persone che presentano problemi cognitivi o demenza (deterioramento cognitivo lieve, declino soggettivo della memoria o demenza di #Alzheimer).

Includere nella ricerca pazienti e persone a rischio di disturbo cognitivo e analizzarne i bisogni reali e gli aspetti della vita quotidiana è importante se si vuole rendere la tecnologia utile ed accessibile alla #ricercascientifica.

Per questo motivo, Innovation to Grow www.i2grow.it con il supporto scientifico del team della Prof.ssa Patrizia Mecocci dell’Istituto di Gerontologia e Geriatria dell’ Università degli Studi di Perugia, in collaborazione con centri di ricerca Europei d’eccellenza nella ricerca sulla Demenza, svilupperanno una strategia di comunicazione di alfabetizzazione sanitaria (Health Literacy Communication Strategy) rivolta ai cittadini a rischio di disturbi dello spettro cognitivo, in particolare della creazione di un sito web specializzato sull’alfabetizzazione sanitaria.
Un Health Literacy Portal in cui si potrà accedere a contenuti incentrati su prevenzione del declino cognitivo e alla prevenzione della salute in generale nella popolazione anziana.
