I’m Dearbhla and I will be facilitating this class.
Thank you for enrolling on this short course – Dementia- what is it? and What’s brain health got to do with it?
I’ve designed this course so that by the end of the course you will have be able to
- Identify what dementia is and the range of symptoms people experience
- Explore the role of brain health in helping to reduce the risk of dementia.
To help with this I’ve broken the course down into eight lessons. The first lesson is a short quiz which you must do before you commence Lesson two.
Here’s what we’ll be covering today:
Lesson 1: What do you know about dementia?
Lesson 2: The brain and memory
Lesson 3: What is dementia?
Lesson 4: Types of dementia
Lesson 5: Dementia risk factors throughout the life course
Lesson 6: Some dementia risk factors explained
Lesson 7: What you can do to reduce your risk
Lesson 8: References
