Posted on 23/08/2016Eat to Cheat Dementia
Ngaire Hobbins returns to the Florey to take us further on the food journey which began with her first book, Eat to Cheat Ageing.
Eat To Cheat Dementia expands on the healthy brain chapter in the first book, summarising the latest research on what we can do to reduce our chance of cognitive decline and dementia, but also provides an invaluable resource for those living with a dementia diagnosis and the people who care about them. It provides practical strategies and advice to keep people enjoying independent lives as long as possible.
Ngaire Hobbins is a dietitian driven by a passion to promote independence and health in older people by averting physical and mental decline that is all too common because of inappropriate food choices. She is an advocate for promoting the joy of eating and the essential place food plays in the health of all older people, whether living independently, being assisted in the community or residing in residential care. She's lives in Australia and is a clinical practitioner, aging wellness consultant, an author, aged care consultant and seniors' advocate.
Ngaire's common sense approached to food is built on years in practice combined with a thorough review of the nutritional science in ageing years. You will be entertained and you will go home with a new understanding of food and the role it plays as we age.
Ngaire's talk will include a question and answer session. Her book will be available for purchase on the day.
