Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind
“Great advice and excellent science on aging! It’s well worth following and applying these principles so as to age the way we are supposed to.”–Dr. Caroline Leaf, cognitive neuroscientist, communication pathologist, and author
While growing older is inevitable, many of the troubles we associate with aging–including dementia, disability, and an increased dependence on others–are not. The choices we make now can help us maintain a sharp mind, our vitality, and our independence as we age.
Filled with simple, everyday actions you can take to avoid disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s, The Aging Brain is an easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout your life. Based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, the actions and interventions explained in this book not only prevent progression toward dementia, even in those who have already shown mild cognitive impairment, but also reduce disability and depression and keep people living independently longer than those who do not practice these methods.
If you want to slow the aging process, this book offers a hopeful, healthy way forward.

“Memory concerns and age-related cognitive losses are some of the most significant issues we face as we age. Those who desire improved brain and general health should read Dr. Timothy Jennings’s book The Aging Brain. In addition to providing a comprehensive review of normal brain aging, Dr. Jennings translates data from recent scientific studies into practical strategies for improving memory and other cognitive skills. By following the suggested lifestyle changes one may prevent the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease.”–Allan A. Anderson, MD, medical director, Bratton Memory Clinic, Easton, Maryland; assistant professor, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine; former president, The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry
“Dr. Jennings clearly describes how to practically manage the medical and lifestyle variables that can positively impact brain health and the process of aging. Age is a number, but getting old is a lifestyle.”–Michael Lyles, psychiatrist, author, and speaker
“Brain-health research is exploding, and it’s important to each and every one of us. From childhood development to late-life challenges such as dementia, brain function is at the center of everything. Few life issues are as painful as watching someone you love deteriorate mentally. Dr. Jennings helps us understand the aging brain, offering timely wisdom, practical insight, guidance, and wise counsel. This book is a wonderful addition to your personal and professional library and ministry resources.”–Dr. Tim Clinton, president, American Association of Christian Counselors
