NEW! Healthy brain Test


Incidence of Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias is on the rise. 


The healthy brain test uses a video conference platform so you can get tested in the privacy of your own home.

You will receive a report with standardized scores and interpretation so you know how your brain is functioning now and be able to track changes as you age. 

Identify changes early so you can take action and prepare for a future with the quality of life you deserve!

**You must live in Washington, California, or Alaska**

Cooking Class

For a number of reasons, including stroke or general aging, swallowing food and liquid can become difficult leading to coughing and choking.

This 4 week class will focus on how to modify your favorite recipes to make them safe and easy to eat. You may learn a few new ones too!

Call or email for details on next session.
