Sean Connery, the famously recognized actor who portrayed James Bond in countless movies who sadly recently passed away, did in fact suffer from dementia in his final years.
Dementia is a scary and sometimes unavoidable reality that exists. There are risk factors that we can change, and a few risk factors that we can’t change, which can lead to this disease. The risk factors that we can’t change are age and family history.
We actually all have some risk of developing dementia, but obviously some have a higher or lower risk than others. The number one risk of developing dementia is age. For example, an 80 year old woman is more likely to develop dementia in 5 years than a typical 30 year old female.
