Help Fend Off Cognitive Decline in Active Agers

Working with the active aging community gives you the chance to help people maintain their health—and their independence. Cognitive decline is one of the largest factors in the loss of independence, and it’s an issue that is growing worldwide. According to World Health Organization, around 50 million people have dementia, and that number is projected to reach 82 million in 2030. Exercise, however, may be the key to keeping people healthy both physically and mentally. Research now indicates that cognitive decline can improve with specialized exercises that combine physical and cognitive elements.

In this video training, Dianne McCaughey Ph.D.—a gerontology expert, international speaker and author—will teach you the science of exercise for the active ager. With a focus on building neuroplasticity, you will learn how to design exercises and activities that stimulate the brain and the body simultaneously. The course offers practical, evidence-based information and tools to help stimulate cognitive function in your aging clients so they can thrive in their golden years.

You will learn:

  • The levels of cognitive and emotional function
  • The risk factors for cognitive decline and implement strategies to manage and prevent them
  • To apply simple, social and fun activities to stimulate various aspects of cognitive function
