Did you know Neurologists report mental exercise can reduce your chances of developing Dementia by up to 68%? We now know that age is not the only predictor of declining mental capacity but in fact, there are many other risk factors such as social isolation, dietary choices, and physical activity levels that all play a significant role in our brain function. Almost 50% of dementia cases are influenced by lifestyle factors and are preventable!

SouthBrook’s Mind Hope Ministry is dedicated to raising awareness for Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Mind Hope also offers support for those affected by Alzheimer’s and Dementia – whether you are living with Dementia or caring for someone with the disease.
