Brain Stimulation Program
More and more studies have shown the importance of exercising the brain to help maintain cognition as we age. Keeping your brain active is a key factor in healthy aging, just as we exercise our bodies we must exercise our minds. This program is specifically designed to stimulate brain function for the active senior, those with mild cognitive impairment, or early stage Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia by employing a variety of cognitively challenging activities. All activities focus on cognitive strengthening, maintaining and improving hand eye coordination, and using fine motor skills. Sessions are conducted individually or in a small group setting in either the clients home or facility.

In-Home Therapeutic Recreation provides social interactions, cognitive stimulation, and promotes independence for seniors. An example of an hour of In-Home Therapeutic Recreation would include exercise, task oriented activities to promote hand-eye coordination and motor skill development, and a creative exercise such as arts and crafts, poetry, or writing. Activities in the community are also encouraged, such as shopping, going to museums, theaters and walks in the park. Training will also be provided to healthcare providers such as, home care agencies, assisted living facilities, and adult homes. This program is especially beneficial to those suffering from Alzheimer's disease or dementia as well as the frail elderly.
