The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is reminding people to not just focus on physical health, but keeping their brain healthy during Brain Awareness Month.
Client Services Manager Trina Hodgson says staying physically and socially active can help improve brain health, reducing the risk of developing diseases like Alzheimer’s later in life.
Hodgson says nutrition is also a key factor in keeping your brain in top shape.
“We want people to be aware of the Canada Food Guide – that’s a good starting place for people,” says Hodgson. “Also, we don’t think of all the little things we need our brain to do. Our brain is vital to our lives and we really need to take care of it.”
The Alzhemier Society is hosting an educational evening on March 14th to discuss the relationship between nutrition and brain health.
