Summary

Have you ever spent 10 minutes looking for your reading glasses, and they were on the top of your head? Or, have you walked into a room and forgotten why you went there? Where are your car keys?

What’s normal aging? When should you be concerned? Is there anything you can do to maintain your brain health as you age?

This audiobook provides useful, achievable actions you can take, accurate information about identifying problems, and real solutions. Our team offers anecdotes and scientifically validated information - important tools in separating myth from reality.

Our audiobook is different from others on the market because our information and recommendations are based on scientifically validated, peer-reviewed studies published in reputable journals by world-renowned researchers in the neuroscience field, including our authors. We separate fact from fiction to ensure that our recommendations are practical, useful, achievable, and measurable. Our authors are recognized experts in the field of aging, cognition, and brain health. Most of the competition is not.

Written by a world-renowned cognitive specialist, an extraordinary house-call physician, and an award-winning author on eldercare issues - all of whom specialize in caring for those with cognitive impairment - this audiobook is based on our expertise, practical experience, and peer-reviewed research.

In addition to providing scientifically validated information and practical advice, our audiobook separates myth from reality. Brain health, cognitive impairment, and mood disorders are serious issues. With the Baby Boomer market growing older and growing concerned about their and their parents’ brain health, the marketplace has attracted frauds, charlatans, and some well-meaning but poorly informed people who offer unproven and often dangerous products. Our authors are recognized experts, our practical experience is solid, and our science is peer-reviewed and validated.

Great for Mostly Non-Healthcare Professionals

I write this review as a healthcare professional and someone who is very familiar with various cognitive assessments and treatments. I noticed this book was co-authored by the author of the BCAT, which perked my initial interest. The content of the book itself was decent, however, I felt as someone in this field it was hard to glean much from it. It would seem to me as if the target audience is someone who perhaps has a family member with a cognitive impairment or is beginning to show those signs to help them know what to expect.
Beyond this, the content of this book seems more like a summary to me. I wish that they would go into more detail about some of the concepts as opposed to just presenting the concept itself. It felt very much like a starting point, without much direction as to where to go next.
The book ultimately left me hoping for a bit more, but as mentioned previously, I'm evidently not the target audience.

Complicated material clearly explained

Brain Health as You Age is an enjoyable read that takes what would otherwise be a dry subject and with relatable anecdotes, makes it interesting to both medical professionals and laypersons alike. I have been in the medical field for over 25 years and my wife has no medical experience, and we both enjoyed it from our different perspectives. A good read overall and a good place to start a conversation about aging in general.
