Alzheimer's Australia's Your Brain Matters program is based on scientific evidence that a number of health and lifestyle factors that we can all do something about are associated with brain function and the risk of developing dementia.
The brain changes that cause dementia begin many years before any symptoms appear. The evidence suggests that midlife is a critical time to think about looking after your brain, body and heart. But it is never too late to make changes that will improve your brain health.

Alzheimer's Australia's new awareness campaign, There's a difference, aims to show the difference between forgetting something once and forgetting it many times.
