This Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) report examines the evidence for appropriate nutrition being able to help improve the quality of life for people with dementia.
This document reviews the potential impact of dietary factors throughout life in increasing or decreasing the risk of developing dementia in later life. It also examines interventions to improve the nutrition of people with dementia, whether directly through diet, or via external considerations such as modifying mealtime environments and through better support and training carers.
