Healthy living with dementia
Information and advice on diet, physical activity, staying socially and mentally active and other ways of looking after your health and well being.
This information sheet is for people with early dementia who would like to know more about healthy living. It will also be of interest to carers of people with dementia. It includes information and advice on diet, physical activity, staying socially and mentally active and other ways of looking after your health and well being.
It is important for everyone to have a healthy diet and to take regular physical activity. Looking after your physical and mental health is important in helping you keep well and avoiding complications from other illnesses. However, do not be disheartened if you are unable to maintain a healthy lifestyle all of the time. We all need special treats sometimes and do not always feel up to exercising. You will still benefit from adopting good habits the rest of the time.
