Full Description: 

Nearly 23 million older adults in the U.S. are economically insecure—either living in poverty or one “bad break” away from it, and lacking the resources to support their basic health, nutrition, housing, and daily needs. As policymakers debate proposals that could scale back Medicare and Social Security benefits, this population may experience even more setbacks to achieving financial stability.  How can funders who are interested in improving the lives of America’s seniors invest in economic security and their communities in manageable ways?  What lessons can we learn regarding introducing new supportive tools and services into communities, and bringing these to scale?

Webinar: Healthy Brain, Healthy Decisions: Empowering Older Adults to be Smart Decision-Makers

Event Date: 
09.05.2013 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Short Description: 

Presented by MindAlert

Full Description: 

In partnership with the MetLife Mature Market Institute, researchers from the Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas and the University of California at San Francisco will present findings from a collaborative study on decision-making. Counter to the pervasively negative view of the aging brain, this seminar will present new evidence showing age does not significantly predict better decision-making, and cognitive control was a better predictor than age on ability to make good decisions. The aging mind, as implicated by this study, may retain strategic decision-making capacity from the fifties to the eighties, given cognitive brain health. This study demonstrates the ability of an older, healthy brain not only to make good decisions, but also to retain robust cognitive performance. Ultimately, efforts to elucidate the potential of the aging mind to maintain and improve sound decision-making capacity will have broad public health benefits to mitigate disadvantageous financial decisions and abuse. By empowering older adults to engage in healthy practices to keep their cognitive skills robust, our growing population of adults in later life will have the confidence to continue to make sound decisions and keep their minds engaged throughout their lifetime.
