We offer a wide range of general and specialist care and we operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The care we provide enables you to remain in your own home so you can maintain your independence and have some say in your own healthcare.

  1. 1. Diet for the Brain: The Right Nutrition May Prevent Dementia RDNS 31 Alma Rd, St Kilda, VIC 3182 1300 33 44 55
  2. 2. With these alarming statistics, many scholars and organisations are embarking on research to shed some light on effective prevention of the disease. Dementia is one of the leading causes of disability in Australians aged 65 years or older, with statistics showing that over 342,800 Australians currently suffer from dementia. Experts say that the number will grow further in less than 10 years, reaching up to 400,000.The figure is set to soar higher to900,000 by 2050 if there will be no medical advancements.
  3. 3. Eating for the Brain Researchers observed 1260 participants, aged 60 to 77, who were already showing risk factors for dementia. The participants were instructed to exercise and maintain a healthy diet. It is a well-known fact that maintaining a healthy diet is key to optimum health and overall wellbeing. Recent research reveals, however, that it could also be an effective prevention strategy for dementia. Experts say that a balanced diet rich in important nutrients could slow down, and even stop cognitive decline. The researchers recommended a diet plan that helped the participants get 10-20% calories from protein sources, 25-35% calories from fat, 45-55% daily energy from carbohydrates and 25-35 grams of dietary fibre. The participants consumed more fruits and vegetables, wholegrain cereal and low-fat milk and meat products, and fish. They were also restricted in terms of sugar intake.
  4. 4. Brain Power Two years after conducting the methodology, the researchers analyzed the cognitive abilities of the participants using the Neuropsychological Test Battery. In general, the intervention group’s test results were higher (25%) than the control. The researchers found that the intervention group had a more strengthened ability to manage thoughts. Their test results were 83% higher than the control group in this aspect. The researchers also analyzed processing speed and concluded that those participants who underwent the strict diet were 150% better than those who did not. Diet plays a crucial role not just in improving physical health, but also in preventing cognitive disorders. For family members who have elderly relatives, it is important to understand the importance of right meal preparation for seniors. For this, it is recommended to work with residential aged care specialists to ensure that elderly relatives have the right nutrition.
