(Koshi, Kumamoto, Japan)
One of my best friends has got dementia recently. I am shocked to see him being quite a different person.
I am very afraid of having dementia myself. So I have decided to do something to prevent it.
There are three things I am doing now.
(1) Learning a foreign language (English in my case). They say that few bilinguals have dementia.
(2) Singing songs. I usually sing oldies on karaoke.
(3) Playing ‘igo’ a board game. This needs hard thinking.
I hope I can prevent dementia as much as possible by doing these three things.
