The 'Nutrition and dementia' report investigates how the right nutrition can help make life better for people affected by dementia.

The report reviews dietary factors across the life course that might increase or decrease the risk of onset of dementia in later life. It also details what actions could be taken to improve the nutrition of people with dementia, through diet and external factors such as modifying the mealtime environment and supporting and training carers.

Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), supported by a grant from Compass Group, commissioned researchers Professor Martin Prince, Professor Emiliano Albanese, Dr Maëlenn Guerchet and Dr Matthew Prina from the Global Observatory for Ageing and Dementia Care at King’s College London to produce the report.
