Why We Like This Video:

Preventative health involves manageable changes that people can implement into their everyday lives. Some ways people can actively prevent Alzheimer’s disease include proper sleep hygiene, getting enough physical activity, and eating a diet that is rich in healthy fats and antioxidants but low in sugar are some effective and well studied lifestyle changes that adults can implement in their lives today. In addition, helping your clients stay cognitively sharp and stimulated by using a digital cognitive therapy tool, good cognitive therapy worksheets, and helping them stay social and engaged with others are ways to maintain brain health and help your clients age successfully. As a clinical provider, you can help your elderly clients make effective and meaningful changes that will benefit their health in the long-run.
