The Brain Health and Wellness SMA is a comprehensive lifestyle program designed to improve memory and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia in a series of six shared medical appointments. You will learn the latest research on lifestyle modifications for brain health and will practice several of the recommended activities during the appointments. Your individual medical concerns will be evaluated in a one-on-one appointment with a physician prior to the first SMA, in the shared medical appointments, and in a follow-up visit after the SMA series has ended.
The Brain Health and Wellness SMA is for adults of any age who are concerned about occasional memory lapses or who have a family history of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and want to be proactive about their brain health.
To find out if Brain Health and Wellness is right for you, a lifestyle medicine specialist will first perform a thorough assessment. If we determine that further evaluation is indicated, we will refer you to the appropriate Cleveland Clinic specialists. If evaluation demonstrates that participation in our group appointments could benefit you, you will be referred to the Brain Health and Wellness appointments.
Appointments are offered at multiple Cleveland Clinic locations. Please call 216.448.4325, option 1 to schedule your initial consult.
Shared medical appointments are covered by most insurance plans. Contact your insurance plan to verify coverage. Patients are responsible for insurance copays for each appointment.
