Welcome to Ology
Most people’s memory becomes less reliable as they get older. But if you, or other people, are noticing that your memory mistakes are becoming worse, or affecting day-to-day life, you should seek help as it may be an early sign of dementia.
This free minicourse will increase your awareness of the risks that can lead to memory decline and dementia using a simple, self-guided analysis of your habits and lifestyle and how these relate to your brain health.
Dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem solving or language, and changes in mood, perception or behaviour. It affects more than 50 million people worldwide!
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases such as Alzheimers or a series of strokes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia.
There is currently no cure for dementia. But you can prevent or slow down memory decline and the onset of dementia by taking control of lifestyle factors that contribute to the health of your brain.
We are here to help you understand those lifestyle factors, in a simple, online journaling exercise that puts you in the driving seat of your brain health and well-being.
So let's start off with a few simple questions -
Do you forget why you went upstairs?
Do you fail to put a name to a familiar face?
Do you feel that a word is 'on the tip of your tongue'?
Do you or other people comment on your memory loss?
Do you want to understand why these things might happen?
Do you want to learn some strategies to cope better with your memory and thinking?
Insight about your habits and lifestyle is key to a healthy brain and happy life.
My partner and I at Ology (we're a neuroscientist and clinical psychologist) have dedicated our careers to understanding the brain and supporting people through challenging life events and experiences.
