Our findings suggest that being an active member of a supportive community and engaging in physical and mental exercise may be the best ways to combat dementia-related illnesses. Having a sense of community is especially important as well. For example, we know that LGBTQI+ seniors have often experienced depression in their lifetime. We recommend talking with a mental health or other healthcare provider to ensure your brain, mind and body remain healthy.
