Welcome to Alzheimer’s Australia’s Your Brain Matters website.
This website will show you the close links between what’s good for your physical health and what’s good for your brain. There are many things you can build into your everyday life to be brain healthy.
Over the next three years with funding from the Commonwealth Government Alzheimer’s Australia will be informing you of ways to look after your brain health. This is the first publically funded program of its kind in the world.
We’ll be adding many useful resources and activities to this website, so be sure to stay tuned.

Keeping your brain active matters
Challenge your brain with fun activities that involve thinking and learning and get involved in social situations to keep your brain active and healthy.
Being fit and healthy matters
Make sure you get enough exercise , eat a healthy diet and get regular check ups with your doctor. This will help you stay healthy and keep dementia at bay.
Looking after your heart matters
A healthy brain needs a healthy heart. So get regular check ups to make sure your blood pressure , blood sugar , cholesterol and weight are at healthy levels for you.
"Being brain healthy is important for everyone, at any age."
In fact, scientific research suggests that living brain healthy life may help us to reduce our risk of developing dementia. There are no guarantees as dementia cannot yet be prevented or cured. Following the Your Brain Matters program will help you to not only look after your brain but also your body and heart.
