The dementia prevention section of this website includes basic information for everyday people about how to protect your brain as you grow older. The material is described in plain English for people who do not have a medical background.

Many doctors do not have the time to read about ways to protect your brain or prevent dementia. Doctors can only read so much material and know so many facts. This website also contains information that doctors can use to better understand the role of health problems and life decisions in intellectual function as you grow older. A parallel site is available for your doctor that explains our recommendations on preventing dementia.
