Youthful Aging has forged a strategic partnership with Roskamp Institute, a world leader in Alzheimer’s disease research. Roskamp conducts cutting-edge clinical trials with the goal of discovering breakthrough therapies for Alzheimer’s and other neurological disorders. By partnering with Roskamp, Youthful Aging can fast-track our clients into groundbreaking clinical trials, and offer them unprecedented access to therapies long before they become available to the public.
Center for Brain Health (Brain Health Clinic)
Youthful Aging has created a scientifically validated therapeutic approach to improve our clients’ brain health and preserve their mental function. Our breakthrough, evidence-based program is called Center for Brain Health. Center for Brain Health focuses on building brain reserve—strengthening and expanding connections between brain cells.
Center for Brain Health starts with a comprehensive brain health assessment called the ADRI. Then, we develop a unique Brain Health Plan for each client. This personalized, intensive lifestyle intervention program includes fitness therapy, diet therapy, and medical interventions to reduce health risks and preserve cognitive function. We evaluate each client at six-month intervals and modify the program as necessary to accommodate changes in health and cognitive status. Clients can continually track their improvement as they work toward optimizing their brain health.
