So anyone with Alzheimer’s disease should never be left alone as there is a risk of falls related to walking outside, gardening or doing other activities. However, people shouting, car or train noises or loud music playing may cause stress and anxiety.

Alzheimer’s Society said, “A healthy diet has a high proportion of oily fish, fruit, vegetables, unrefined cereals and olive oil, and low levels of red meat and sugar.”
“Regular physical exercise in middle-aged or older adults reduces the risk of developing dementia. It’s also good for your heart and mental wellbeing. Exercise like this brings health benefits even if you’re not losing weight.”
