Common Risk Factors for Dementia
Cognitive training is effective
The ACTIVE study and other research have concluded that cognitive and memory training has a significant long term impact on improving cognition and activities of daily living.
In the ACTIVE study, 10 sessions of memory, reasoning or speed training were administered. The impact on cognition and activities of daily living was significant even 10 years later (with boosters).
The Isaac Health brain health and memory training program is based on the ACTIVE study protocol and enhanced with additional research findings.
Research has shown that almost half of dementia cases are potentially preventable by addressing known risk factors. These include both general health factors, environmental factors, medication, and mental activity. At MyIsaacHealth.com we will guide you to identify the risk factors most relevant to you and help you address them. We will also help you boost cognitive function through memory training and coaching. In isolated cases, certain medications may be indicated to control risk factors or boost cognitive function.
While there is a pipeline of potential medications to slow disease progression, there is currently limited medical treatment available. However, there are a few classes of drugs available to slow cognitive decline. See our section on treatment for details. In addition, cognitive interventions, such as cognitive stimulation therapy, has been shown in many cases to be as effective as medications in slowing cognitive decline, building cognitive reserve, and developing compensatory techniques to support living with cognitive decline. Finally, addressing risk factors and maintaining a high level of social and brain activity are the great ways to protect yourself.

We chose the name “Isaac Health” because it reminds us of three things: One of the most influential brains in human history (Sir Isaac Newton), one of the longest-lived biblical figures (Isaac, who lived to 180 years old), and the name “Isaac” literally means “one who laughs or rejoices”. Our name represents what we ultimately hope to achieve for the people we serve through our mission to promote and preserve brain health: a long, fulfilling life with many moments of genius and joy.
