About this Event

11:00 - Sabina Brennan, Trinity College Dublin - on “100 Days to a Younger Brain”

Many people may feel that memory loss and dementia are inevitable parts of ageing. Dr Sabina Brennan, author of 100 Days to a Younger Brain, explains that this is not necessarily the case.

Sabina will explain that scientific evidence shows that our lifestyle can have a major impact on how our brain functions and reacts to the ageing process.

In her lively and entertaining talk she will give tips and practical advice on things that we can do now to protect our brain and memory in the longer term. The evidence to date suggests that its never too late or too early to start looking after our brain health.

Think of it like a pension fund. Healthy brain habits now build the brain’s reserves. It’s a lodgement, like money in the bank for later in life

12:30 - Donal Fallon – Dublin City Historian

3pm - Silver Threads - Gathering Memories & Celebrating Stories of older people.
