As a health care professional, recognizing cognitive decline in your patients may be challenging without the benefit of family communication. However, if your patient begins missing appointments or repeating the same story, you quickly discern that he or she may be experiencing cognitive decline. With the latest research in neuroplasticity, we now understand that there are proactive approaches to cognitive decline that may slow its progression and/or increase the quality of life for seniors. The quicker your response to your patient’s declining memory, the better. Referring them to BrainFlex® Wellness Club will provide the tools and the inspiration your patient needs to fight back.
Our program incorporates exercise, brain training, nutrition, and socialization. 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.
Socialization: Your patients will also engage in socialization, which is a necessity for every human being, and has been shown to prevent depression and increase quality of life.
Nutrition: Nutrition is a vital part of our program, which will reinforce your message regarding the importance of healthy eating habits. Your patients will go home with recipes that are brain healthy and simple to make.
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, helping them to avoid things such as missed medications and appointments.
Our goal at BrainFlex® Wellness Club is healthy aging and living well. We help seniors accomplish this through a carefully designed program that incorporates four key concepts, which are socialization, nutrition, brain training, and exercise.
