A recent Swedish study has appeared to show a link between chronic stress and depression and a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia.

Dementia experts have reminded the public that the study has its limitations while welcoming the continued dialogue and destigmatisation around brain health.
