In brief: See below

Although there is nothing proven to prevent dementia there are several measures that can potentially reduce the impact.
Frequent engagement in cognitive tasks, such as puzzles, is one approach. Preventing cardio/cerebrovascular disease through diet, exercise and if necessary medications is another. For those with a family history of early onset, a discussion with your doctor is important.
