This chapter supports providers as they help middle-aged and older adults manage age-related changes in cognitive functioning and engage in daily living that is consistent with their personal values and life goals. This chapter describes the relevant Learn pages and Practice forms provided in the client workbook, focused on helping aging clients understand cognitive aging, engage in brain-healthy habits, navigate health care, manage medications, and consider whether to complete a cognitive evaluation. The experience of cognitive aging is embedded within social contexts and environments. This chapter directs clinicians to apply recommended strategies that are responsive to the needs of culturally diverse aging clients, including within the context of telehealth.
