Healthy Brain Aging & Dementia Prevention Workshop

05/11/2022 , 10:00 am 11:30 am

Good for you. You cared enough about your cognition to get memory screening last fall. But here’s a chance to do your brain an even bigger favor.

We’re inviting you to sign up for a workshop designed to empower you with the information you need to help keep your mind sharp and reduce the risk of dementia.

This science-based workshop is geared towards adults ages 60 or older who are looking for new and better ways to defend themselves against the threat of Alzheimer’s.

The Go Cogno Healthy Brain Aging & Dementia Prevention Workshop will be presented at SAGE Eldercare in Summit in five weekly sessions beginning on Wednesday, April 13. You’ll learn:
• What dementia is;
• How it differs from normal, age-related memory loss;
• How to spot the warning signs;
• What your personal risks are;
• And what specific, individualized actions you can take to reduce your risk, promote healthy brain aging and maintain a good quality of life as you age.

This workshop is particularly geared toward older adults who have a family history of Alzheimer’s or are experiencing memory concerns that worry them. It will empower you to move beyond the fear and stigma around Alzheimer’s and take control of your brain health. Best of all, it’s being offered for free, which makes it  a no-brainer (or in this case, a “yes” brainer).

The workshop emphasizes hands-on learning and group participation, so the size of the class is limited to 16 participants. It will meet every Wednesday morning from 10 am to 11:30 am from April 13 through May 11. Because of the interactive nature of the workshop, we ask that you commit to attending all five sessions. We also welcome you to sign up with a spouse, family member or friend and attend together. Having a partner in brain health is even better.

Registration for the workshop is open through April 1. We encourage you to register soon, as we expect the workshop to fill up quickly.To sign up or to ask for more information, reply to this email or call (732) 992-8369 and leave a message. We’ll get back to you.

Here’s to your brain health, and hope to see you at the workshop.

(P.S. — This workshop will be conducted in-person and participants will be asked to follow COVID protocols. To attend, you must be fully vaccinated, including booster shot. Information about masks and social distancing will be shared with you prior to the workshop.)
