At any age, there are lifestyle habits people can adopt to help maintain or even potentially improve their health. These habits may also help to keep people’s brains healthy as they age and possibly delay the onset of cognitive decline. To help people age well, the Alzheimer’s Association is offering the Healthy Habits for a Healthier You program. This workshop covers four areas of lifestyle habits that are associated with healthy aging:

  • Cognitive activity
  • Physical health and exercise
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Social engagement
