The Government have recently undertaken a public awareness campaign on dementia, aimed at raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of dementia and urging people to seek an early diagnosis if they are concerned. The campaign was piloted in the north-west and Yorkshire and the Humber national health service regions, and it may be rolled out across the country once fully evaluated. There are no current plans to undertake a campaign focussed specifically on the links between lifestyle and dementia. However, guidance produced by the Department, including the National Dementia Strategy 2009, emphasises the links between lifestyle and dementia, and that what is good for your heart is good for your head.
