APPLE-Tree Study

Welcome to APPLE-Tree!

The APPLE-Tree study (Active Prevention in People at risk of dementia through Lifestyle, bEhaviour change and Technology to build REsiliEnce) intends to develop and test a prevention programme to reduce the risk of developing dementia in people over the age of 60.

Our main aims are: 

  • To assess whether the APPLE-Tree intervention is acceptable and feasible to deliver in practice
  • To confirm if the APPLE-Tree intervention reduces cognitive decline over two years
  • To explore what factors may determine decisions of NHS and third sector organisations not taking part in the trial, regarding whether or not they decide to adopt the new intervention, if it is demonstrated to be clinically effective and cost-effective
