Rate and track your brain health today!
BrainyApp was developed by Alzheimer's Australia in partnership with Bupa Health Foundation to raise awareness of the risk factors for Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia, and to help you be brain healthy.
There are more than 353,800 Australians currently living with dementia. Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to be almost 900,000 by 2050.
There is something you can do to reduce your risk. Scientific evidence tells us that certain lifestyle and health behaviours, particularly around midlife, are associated with reduced risk of developing dementia in late life. In fact, the changes in the brain that lead to dementia can start when people are in their 30s and 40s. So, look after your brain health to reduce your risk of dementia. It's never too early or late to start, as brain health can be improved and protected at any age. Use the BrainyApp survey to find out how brain healthy you are. Commit to regular activities to improve your health.
You can download BrainyApp from the Apple and Google app stores. Or use BrainyApp on your computer, at www.BrainyApp.com.au.
What can I do with BrainyApp?
Complete the brain health survey, which asks questions about your current physical, social and mental activity, cardiovascular health, diet, smoking and drinking habits. The brain-heart health score achieved indicates how brain healthy your current lifestyle is.
Engage in the recommended activities to improve in areas that may be increasing your dementia risk. Completing more activities leads to more brain-heart points. Watch your score and your brain-heart health improve over time, and share your score on Facebook to earn extra points. Activities include two brain games to help you exercise your memory, language and motor control skills.
Learn interesting facts about dementia, the brain and how to keep your brain healthy.
Share facts on Facebook to spread the word about dementia risk reduction and earn extra brain-heart points.
