Preventing Cognitive Decline

Keep your mind sharp into your golden years by adopting healthier habits now.

A heart-healthy lifestyle can prevent dementia later.
Believe it or not, dementia does not have to be an inevitable part of aging.

Research shows that people who choose heart-healthy habits by age 35 can reduce their risk for age-related cognitive decline when they’re older.
Those habits include exercising regularly, not smoking, lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, and maintaining a healthy weight.
