The program is designed to reduce cognitive decline in Aboriginal people aged 45 years and over. This program is being evaluated through a randomised controlled trial at a number of Western Australian Aboriginal community-controlled health services. 

The program targets key dementia risk factors, including physical inactivity, falls, head injury and cardiovascular factors.
