Watching seniors and their families experience the heartache of dementia has been absolutely heartbreaking. We realized the desperate need for a program that provided a proactive, rather than reactive, approach to cognitive decline and believed we could do more to preserve and enhance the cognitive abilities of all seniors, both those who have dementia, those at risk of developing dementia, and those who simply want to do what they can to maintain or improve their quality of life.
There are various programs created to help caregivers and their families work with seniors facing the long road of dementia. These programs are all designed to help improve the quality of the “moment” and to decrease the frustration that is often the result of desperately trying to persuade our loved ones to hang on to reality as “we” see it. This type of education is wonderful and necessary. However, it is reactive.
“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.”
We wanted to offer a proactive program, one which provided a place where seniors could get together and participate in various brain training activities, nutrition education, and age-appropriate exercise, while socializing in an environment that fosters friendship and healthy connections. Research continues to support that these four concepts, if consistently applied together, have the potential to deter the progression of dementia. These four concepts can all be achieved here at BrainFlex® Wellness Club.
