Lifestyle Interventions

One of the primary goals of the Cognitive Empowerment Program is to provide structured activities that enhance physical, cognitive, and emotional wellbeing and allow our Members to remain as independent as possible in their day-to-day functioning. Program activities are selected based on research regarding beneficial practices for people with MCI. The Lifestyle Interventions team is comprised of professionals with expertise in the following areas:

The team has experts in each of the following areas:

  • Physical exercise
  • Yoga
  • Tai Chi
  • Cognitive training
  • Nutritional education
  • Functional independence training
  • Education on how to cope with MCI
  • Social engagement
  • Support groups

Members and Care Partners work with a coach and complete the multi-disciplinary curriculum over one year. Goal-setting is implemented to assist in individualizing the program and track progress. Our objective is to provide education and experiences that help Members and Care Partners remain engaged and establish habits so that they will continue to feel capable and empowered in their daily lives.

As part of their participation in Lifestyle Intervention activities, Members connect at various touch points with our Built Environment, Technology, and Research Innovation teams. Members and Care Partners can team up with researchers as advisors or participants in cutting edge research studies aimed at improving the lives of people living with MCI. Together, we are focused on developing and testing new interventions, environments, and technologies that transform the experience of living with MCI.
