How brain-healthy do you think you are? BrainyApp will guide you on how to live a brain-healthy lifestyle and show you that what is good for your heart is also good for your brain.
As well as being important for good memory and thinking skills, being brain healthy may also reduce your risk of developing dementia.
To get the most out of BrainyApp, start by taking the Brain Health Survey, which will give you your initial brain health score. You will be able to email yourself your results and feedback on how you went.
You can then regularly add to your score by completing the suggested Activities in BrainyApp. If you’re not doing enough Activities, you’ll see your brain-heart health score decrease.
You can also earn extra points by sharing your score and BrainyApp Facts on Facebook.
BrainyApp has the following features:
Brain health survey – see what your brain health score is and get personalised recommendations on what you can do to improve your brain health
Brain games – give your brain a work out
Activities – add to your brain health points with a range of activities including exercise, eating well, getting health checks, keeping your mind active and managing your smoking and alcohol intake
Monitor your Brain Health Points and track your progress over time
Get a daily fact sent to you
Share facts and your brain health scores with friends and family

Mange raske mennesker oplever af og til problemer med at huske. Det er helt almindeligt at glemme:
- Aftaler og gøremål
- Hvor man har lagt nøgler eller briller
- Hvorfor man fx er gået ud i køkkenet
Men hvis du gennem en periode på mindst et halvt år oplever, at din hukommelse er blevet væsentligt ringere, så tal med din nærmeste familie og drøft det med din læge.
Problemer med at huske behøver ikke være tegn på demens. Hukommelsesbesvær kan også forekomme i forbindelse med stress, depression eller andre sygdomme.
Husk: Demens er tegn på sygdom - ikke alderdom.
