Who Knew?

By Dr. Uchechi Wosu Isirimah – Owner | July 31, 2017

Dementia affects more than 5 million Americans but a new study in The Lancet shows that 1 in 3 cases of dementia could be prevented. Healthy habits are not only important in protecting against heart disease and diabetes but also dementia. The article cites that dementia is not an illness that will inevitably occur as you age, but just as other illnesses, there are perhaps modifiable health and lifestyle factors that play a role in the development or prevention of dementia. The Lancet Commission on dementia identified the following 7 factors that could modify the underlying disease process:

  1. reducing smoking
  2. treating hypertension
  3. treating diabetes
  4. treating hearing impairment
  5. increasing education in early life
  6. increasing physical activity
  7. increasing social engagement

So, why wait? Act now and put into place healthy behaviors that can potentially ward off a devastating and life altering disease. Remember prevention is always better than cure!

At Brighthope Homecare, our caregivers are trained to address these modifiable factors. If you or your loved one need additional support please contact us at: Or you can visit our website at

As a physician who lives and serves in Northern Virginia, I have come to know several people who at some time in their life needed home care services. In my office I hear stories of good and bad experiences and I desired to offer something better – a company that would serve as a blessing to the clients we serve by providing them with reliable, quality, and compassionate care. Having served as a primary care physician, I understand the needs of patients and their family who often times do not have the assistance they desperately need. So I have created a company that delivers on providing peace of mind, recovery time, a lending hand, a stress free environment, and a constant companion.

As a native of the Washington, DC, I have truly enjoyed working in this area and volunteering my time in a variety of social and civic organizations in DC, MD and VA. I feel is it important to give back to your community and be of service to others.

I also believe in the importance of living healthy and having emotional stability and peace of mind. As a local physician and health coach I will add a sense of confidence, trust, and expertise unlike any other home care agency.

I work hard everyday at Brighthope Homecare to do what I do best – care for those in need and make a positive impact in the lives of our clients!
