Pathways to Successful Aging! The 5 Key Factors to Age Well
Dr. John Arden, neuropsychologist, author, a pioneer in brain-based therapy, and Director of Training in Mental Health for Kaiser Permanente for Northern California. This recording highlights the five key factors that support successful aging.
The baby boomer generation is soon to explode into the healthcare scene. As a healthcare professional you will be asked to help the aging population in new, lower cost, and easy-to-achieve methods to slow down dementia and other age-related diseases.
Dr. John Arden spent four decades working successfully to help ordinary people with various mental and physical health conditions.
He discovered a number of years ago that if he explained in easy terms how their brains work, how the simple things they can do to alter their brain functioning, their physical functioning and their prospects of aging healthfully, positive results took place!
In this 2-hour voyage into your brain, and Dr. John Arden will show you these 5 key factors for aging successfully- and how you can best explain them to your clients!
1. Social Support — linked to wellbeing, cognition and longevity.
2. Physical activity — neurogenesis, reduction of inflammation, normalization of blood glucose and enhancement of cell repair.
3. Lifelong pursuit of new learning — reduced risk of cognitive decline or dementia.
4. Healthy diet tips — key neurotransmitters protect the brain from rapid aging, Type 2 diabetes, cognitive decline and dementia.
5. Quality sleep — supports memory consolidation, brain glucose metabolic activity and cognition.
