Our Approach

Old couple with cognitive decline looking to reverse dementia and improve brain fog

This comprehensive, research-based, multi-modal approach to preventing and treating cognitive decline that works by detecting and addressing root causes.

It was developed by our medical director Randy Vawdrey, NP-C, MSN. It is based on a synthesis of the research and recommendations of industry experts such as:

-Dale Bredesen, MD

-Richard Isaacson, MD

-Warren Willey, DO

-Chris Shade, PhD

-Daniel Amen, MD

-and many others leading the way in dementia research.

The main misconception regarding cognitive decline is that there is really nothing that can be done to slow down, or even reverse the process. Here at the Maryland Center for Brain Health, we are delighted to share with you specific things you can do to go from your current level of cognitive and physical functioning to one of greater focus, clarity, well-being and confidence.

Sucess Story

My husband and I want to remain mentally sharp and vibrant as we age so we wanted a baseline assessment and action plan.

We found Lindsey, who met all of our requirements. She is so knowledgeable, has great assessment tools, provided great feedback and exercises for improvement and our plan is to continue to work with Lindsey.

They always say, Rome wasn’t built in a day and the same is true for improving brain health. Cognitive changes begin occurring 10-20 years before someone may receive an Alzheimer’s diagnosis.  Quality progress takes time to undo years of decline, but the greatest journeys often start with just a single step.
