"Great advice and excellent science on aging! It's well worth following and applying these principles so as to age the way we are supposed to."--Dr. Caroline Leaf, cognitive neuroscientist, communication pathologist, and author
While growing older is inevitable, many of the troubles we associate with aging--including dementia, disability, and an increased dependence on others--are not. The choices we make now can help us maintain a sharp mind, our vitality, and our independence as we age.
Filled with simple, everyday actions you can take to avoid disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late-onset Alzheimer's, The Aging Brain is an easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout your life. Based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, the actions and interventions explained in this book not only prevent progression toward dementia, even in those who have already shown mild cognitive impairment, but also reduce disability and depression and keep people living independently longer than those who do not practice these methods.
If you want to slow the aging process, this book offers a hopeful, healthy way forward.

Poling, MD, DFAPA, medical director, Behavioral Healthcare Center, Columbia, Tennessee; board-certified geriatric psychiatrist
"Dr. Jennings clearly describes how to practically manage the medical and lifestyle variables that can positively impact brain health and the process of aging. Age is a number, but getting old is a lifestyle."--Michael Lyles, psychiatrist, author, and speaker
