Mind Boosters went online.
“I knew something was going on with my state of mind, and a cognitive skills test confirmed it. Mind Boosters has given me back confidence in myself and a better attitude—which my husband really appreciates. My most recent cognitive skills test with my neurologist has shown a six-point improvement since I started here.” —J
“I play golf and work out at the gym, but as I get older, it’s harder to find new people to socialize with. In Mind Boosters, we share a condition that’s the kind of thing you can’t talk about with just anybody. But here we can socialize while strengthening our brains. I especially enjoy the civilized back-and-forth about current events.” —L
Improving Brain Health in the
Early Stages of Memory Loss
We now live approximately 22 years longer than a generation ago. So it’s no surprise that the number of cases of age-relateddiseases that affect the brain—Alzheimer’s, other forms of dementia, and stroke—have increased significantly.
But research shows that the brain is capable of change, even improvement, with training, which is why Collabria Care offers Mind Boosters. This community program is valuable for those in the early stages of memory loss who want to be proactive in maintaining and improving their brain health.
“The brain, like the rest of the body, needs to be worked to stay healthy as we age,” says Program Manager Veronna Ladd. “And just like your body, one type of exercise isn’t going to keep you in optimum health, so we address socialization, cognitive stimulation, exercise, nutrition, and spirituality, which includes mindfulness and positive thinking.”
Mind Boosters is Now Online
Since the arrival of COVID-19, Mind Boosters has been offered online. Initially it was an issue of safety, to protect our seniors from threat of infection. However, the members quickly adapted to participating via Zoom, and now enjoy it from the comfort of their own homes. The online forum also allows us to reach more seniors all over the county.
