Being diagnosed with dementia does not have to be a death sentence. With World Alzheimer’s Day coming up on Sept. 21, there are many educational tools available to learn what we can do to prevent dementia and have a healthier way moving forward.
While many focus on maintaining physical health—it’s equally important that we keep our brain healthy. Dr. Timothy R. Jennings is making it easy in his book, The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind, which provides rock-solid research on how to prevent dementia.
Jennings shares simple steps to prevent dementia, late-onset Alzheimer’s, and stop the progression of the disease in those with mild cognitive loss.
Alzheimer’s disease is a subject that concerns more than 5.5 million people across the nation: how to prevent dementia and keep our mind sharp as we age. A psychiatrist and international speaker, Jennings prescribes simple, everyday actions we can take to stave off disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s.
“The choices we make now can help us to keep our minds sharp and maintain our independence as we age,” said Jennings.
An easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout life, The Aging Brain is based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, and the interventions discussed can prevent progression toward dementia, even in those already showing signs of mild cognitive impairment. The recommendations also may help reduce disability and depression.
“This book isn’t just for people hoping to slow the aging process,” said Jennings. “It’s also for anyone who is a caregiver to someone at risk of or already beginning to suffer from dementia. It offers a hopeful, healthy way forward.”
Dr. Timothy R. Jennings has authored several books, including The God-Shaped Brain and The God-Shaped Heart. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and Fellow of the Southern Psychiatric Association, and is president and founder of Come and Reason Ministries.
