Free online dementia education for everyone
The Preventing Dementia MOOC (massive open online course) examines the latest evidence on dementia risk factors and ways to reduce the risk. This free online course is open to everyone and members of your network may be interested in learning how to reduce their dementia risk. Being part of an online community of participants can also reduce feelings of isolation.
Recent research† suggests that around 40% of dementia cases might be prevented or delayed by modifying risk factors.
You are never too young or too old to do something about your dementia risk.
