The Mystery of Cognitive Decline

We all question our cognitive abilities at times, but when does forgetfulness become something more sinister? This video demystifies the signs of cognitive decline, offering vital insights into your brain wellness journey.

Cognitive Decline

The Cognitive Health Voyage

Join us as we explore the stages of cognitive decline, from the subtle changes of subjective cognitive impairment to the more noticeable shifts of mild cognitive impairment. Learn how to spot early warning signs and what they mean for your cognitive longevity.

Empowerment Through Cognitive Wellness

1. Knowledge is power.

We provide you with three crucial steps to protect your cognitive health:

2. Cognitive Test and Screening:

Uncover your cognitive status with our recommended tests. Connect with us on Facebook or YouTube [link here] for guidance on reliable testing centers.

3.Communicating with Your Doctor:

Be proactive about your cognitive health. Schedule an appointment with your doctor, discuss your concerns, and fully comprehend your prescribed medication.

4. Cognitive Wellness Strategies:

Discover lifestyle changes that boost your cognitive abilities - a brain-healthy diet, regular exercise, quality sleep, stress management, brain training exercises, and social connection.

Depression's Role in Cognitive Health

Could your symptoms be caused by depression rather than dementia? Depression can mimic dementia symptoms and create unnecessary distress. We help you differentiate between the two, reminding you that depression is treatable and reversible.
