Capital Caring Board member and Senior VP of AARP Lynn Mento appeared on NBC’s Today Show to highlight the importance of brain health.

A recent study indicated 1 in 10 American households have someone living with memory loss. Mento pointed to an AARP survey of adults 35 years and older in which 93% stated maintaining their brain health was a “top concern.”

Mento said the AARP is committed to helping members, particularly with increasing numbers of retired Americans. Lynn works to inform her members on general aging issues – and these issues, like quality patient care, are very important to our own local supporter community, too.

Mento pointed to proven areas the AARP encourages for maintaining brain health: physical exercise, eating the right foods, learning more and ‘exercising’ your brain, stress less and sleep more.
