  • Swimming prevents dementia, says report

    Swimming prevents dementia, says report

    15.11.19 Swimming is helping to save the health and social care system nearly £140 million every year in terms of expenditure on dementia. This is part of national body Swim England’s economic case for the activity in its new Value of Swimming report. Swim England is calling on the government and health care professionals to encourage swimming so as to “help people live longer, better, happier lives.” The organisation collected data on regular swimmers at more than 1,000 pools over 12 months and passed its findings to Sheffield Hallam University, which used a social value calculator tool to calculate cost savings to health and social care. According to this analysis, the largest health savings were made up from dementia (£139.5 million) and strokes (£100 million).

    Global funding scheme promotes projects focusing on brain health

    14.11.19 A global funding awards programme recognising excellence in promoting brain health has been initiated by Alzheimer’s Society, the Alzheimer’s Association in the USA, and the Global Brain Health Institute. They said that the aim of the “Pilot Awards for Global Brain Health Leaders” was to support emerging leaders in brain health, ageing and dementia by funding small-scale projects, activities or studies to delay or prevent dementia. Among the 27 projects benefiting from overall funding of £533,000 this year are a study of air pollution and dementia in Brazil, an investigation of social media use as a possible precursor of cognitive decline in Egypt and a study of the effects of engagement in dance on people with dementia and their partners in the US. The funding is designed to enable participants to pilot test a project with a view to seeking further resources for scaling it up if successful.
