With the latest research in neuroplasticity, we now understand that there are proactive approaches to both physical and cognitive decline. Research continually supports seniors can increase their quality of life by keeping their brain active and continuing to learn to skills as well as acquiring new knowledge.
Our online program incorporates exercise, brain training, nutrition, and social connecting. When these concepts work together, they result in positive outcomes for your patients.
Exercise: As you know, exercise has many benefits, including boosting brain cell production, reducing depression, and strengthening muscles, which can contribute to a reduction in falls and injuries, thus helping your patients maintain their independence.
Social Connections: Your patients will also have the opportunity to connect with others in a safe environment, where a feeling of belonging is continually fostered. Belonging and purpose are essential for every human being and have been shown to prevent depression and increase quality of life. Our online family provides this environment for our seniors.
Nutrition: Nutrition is a vital part of our program, which will reinforce your message regarding the importance of healthy eating habits. Your patients will be equipped each week with a new recipe that is healthy for both their brain and body. (Each recipe is simple to make and no cooking/baking is required.)
Brain Training: As with any part of the body, if we don’t use it, we lose it. Our brain training stimulates all areas of the brain, which may slow cognitive decline and keep your patients sharp, while also building cognitive reserves. Each lesson incorporates four brain training activities designed to exercise various types of thinking skills. (logic, reason, creative, critical, etc.)
Our goal at BrainFlex® Wellness Club is healthy aging and living well. We help seniors accomplish this through a carefully designed online program that incorporates four key concepts, which are nutrition, brain training, exercise and social connections.
