Healthy Action to Benefit Independence and Thinking (HABIT) is a brain and body wellness program for persons with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or early stage dementia. Persons eligible for the 10-day program enroll with a program partner. Together, they participate in the following five components of overall wellness: daily cognitive compensation training, brain fitness activities, support groups, wellness education, and a fitness/movement program. Research supports that people with early cognitive impairment benefit by developing new ‘habits’ that can compensate for certain memory deficits over a period of time. Incorporating these new habits can play a role in optimizing independence, improving overall health, and maintaining normal daily activities.
