Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation
Key facts about Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation
What is your mission?
The ARPF provides an alternative to the conventional, “magic bullet” drug approach to Alzheimer's Disease and dementia. We believe that you can help yourself, right now, by utilizing a holistic or integrative medical approach, based on the lifestyle tools we have scientifically researched over the past 15 years. This modern medical research reveals that all of the aspects of the ARPF’s Four Pillars of Prevention Plan, including physical and mental exercise, especially when used together, help build a healthier and stronger brain and memory. You can review the 4 Pillars and other research updates on: http://alzheimersprevention.o…
How are donations used?
Our last audit (2018) showed that 92% of every donated dollar went to research and programs. Our organizational structure is very small and virtual, which allows new and continuing research projects and professional education to be our focus. To see how “America’s Best Charities” and other oversight organizations regard ARPF, please scroll to the bottom of our home page: http://alzheimersprevention.o… .
What can be done with a $100 donation?
$100 provides free memory screening assessments for 15 at-risk people or pays for a comprehensive blood test for one person for research purposes.
What progress has been made already thanks to your donors?
Our donors’ generosity is allowing ARPF to participate in continuing studies, including the FINGER Study, organized by the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. FINGER Study is the largest project in history on preventing Alzheimer’s disease through a lifestyle program, and is showing beneficial effects on cognition. For more details, please visit http://alzheimersprevention.o…. ARPF is also sponsoring a new, three-year study called “The Pink Brain™ Project,” in conjunction with the Psychiatry Department at UCLA, to study the impact of a yoga program in women at high risk for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
What is the history of your organization?
Over 25 years ago as we started ARPF, we asked, “What if we could reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and many people could avoid developing dementia? For those who have it, what if there was a way to slow down its progression, so that they could live a healthier and longer life?”
Our mission is to prevent Alzheimer’s disease by funding research studies and providing educational outreach and memory screenings. Our research phase started over 15 years ago and since then the ARPF has been on the leading edge by researching, advocating, and educating for a holistic or integrative approach to preventing memory loss and Alzheimer’s.
We do this by: Researching innovative and breakthrough modalities in the holistic or integrative medical approach for the prevention of this disease. Our research has been published in the prestigious Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, as well as other significant medical journals, such as The International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, Psychiatry Research, Nuclear Medicine Communications and Consciousness and Cognition.
Educating healthcare professionals, patients, and their families as well as the public on the known aspects of Alzheimer’s disease, with particular emphasis on the prevention and treatment of early stage memory loss. In 2017, we began holding annual trainings for professionals to receive CEU’s when they graduate from ARPF’s Brain Longevity® Therapy Training.

Providing Free Memory Screenings to allow those at risk to establish a baseline assessment of their brain health so they can manage their brain’s health.
As a professional serving older adults, how can I apply ARPF's research results?
In 2017 we launched the first annual train-the-trainer style educational program to greatly increase the numbers helped by our research. Brain Longevity® Therapy Training is an evidence-based curriculum that has already helped tens of thousands of individuals maintain healthy brain function with age. This breakthrough medical approach for healthy aging was created by Dharma Singh Khalsa, MD, in the early 1990s as the core program for ARPF. This Brain Longevity Specialist certificate program is offered to all professionals who want to become part of the movement to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of cognitive decline. This training includes: advance reading assignments, lecture, discussion, a review of medical and lifestyle risk factors for Alzheimer’s, review of the latest cutting-edge yoga therapy research on Alzheimer’s prevention, and the elements of a holistic approach to healthy aging and optimal brain functioning.
