BrainyApp enhances brain & heart health. See how it helps reduce the risk of developing dementia. Download a free copy to your smartphone.

BrainyApp was developed by Alzheimer’s Australia and Bupa Health Foundation to raise awareness of the risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, and to help you live a brain healthy life.

Around 36 million people worldwide are living with dementia, with numbers doubling every 20 years to 66 million by 2030. But there is something you can do to reduce your risk.

Scientific evidence tells us that certain lifestyle and health behaviours, particularly around midlife (from age 40 to 60), are associated with reduced risk of developing dementia in late life. In fact, changes in the brain that lead to dementia can start when people are in their 30’s and 40’s.

So look after your brain health to reduce your risk of dementia. It’s never too late or early to start, as brain function can be improved and protected at any age.

Use the BrainyApp Survey to find out how brain healthy you are and complete the Activities to watch your brain health score rise.

BrainyApp is available for Apple and Android devices for FREE:

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
