The ReportsAndData.com report said: "Strong evidence proves the fact that mental activities help in minimizing the risk of age-related cognitive issues like dementia.

At present, there are no medications for conditions like dementia and Alzheimer's disease, which has resulted in elevated dependence on behavioral interventions on the part of geriatric clinician."
