What is the study about?

  • We are comparing the effects of three different online programs for older adults who are concerned about memory loss
  • Programs are designed to improve brain health and slow cognitive decline

"The biggest takeaway for me is that you're not alone in this, almost everyone is in the same boat with what's going on, and that makes you feel so much better."


Why should I participate?

  • You may see an improvement in symptoms such as better cognitive function, better mobility, and reduction in brain health risk factors
  • You may connect with and learn from others that share similar challenges
  • You will be helping to advance medical research
“This class has really helped me to take my life back, to take the reins back, to take increasing amounts of control. It’s really helpful and really non-judgmental. Check it out.”

What can I expect?

  • Participants will be assigned at random to one of 3 programs:
    - Group and individual sessions for 12 weeks
    - Group and individual sessions for 24 weeks
    - Expert video series for 12 weeks
  • The program requires 2 1/2 hours per week
  • You will fill out surveys at the beginning, middle and end
“It’s a great way to feel better about what’s going on with you as you age, worries that you have, fears that you have, it’s a great way to set some goals and make some forward progress.”
