Individual risk profile could help prevent dementia

Prevention of dementia potentially stimulated by drawing up personal risk profile. Scientists at Maastricht UMC+ and the Alzheimer Centrum Limburg have developed a score model especially for this purpose based on various lifestyle factors, which could also offer a reference point for intervention. ‘This enables us to reduce the risk of dementia at an early stage’, said principal researcher Stephanie Vos. The successful results, which show that prevention can be successful, are presented in the scientific journal Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease .
