MMAAProgram for the Curious Adult.

We have discovered that Adults want the Program for their own information. The Program gives adults who are concerned about their own brain health, or the brain health of a loved one, valuable information on Alzheimer's disease from diagnosis through the severe stage. It is effective for all types of dementia. We suggest starting with the "What is Alzheimer’s Disease?" video and watching the other three videos of the disease progression in succession.

A Doctor's Recommendation

"I reviewed the videos & reference material. Wow! This program is excellent!  Well done! Great job explaining the stages of the disease. The concepts are presented and explained in a very clear, effective way. This information speaks well to other types of dementia that cause mental decline such as Lewy body dementia, or Parkinson’s disease. This program would be very helpful for friends and families of patients with Alzheimer’s, dementia or in hospice care. It's easy for kids and adults to understand.
I highly recommend this program."
