“We are really looking forward to conducting the Mind Fit Series at Atria Palm Desert” said Nikhil Mehta, Chief Executive Officer at Home Care Assistance Palm Desert. “We have recently launched this program in the desert community and the response from attendees has been overwhelmingly positive with individuals reporting that they not only thoroughly enjoyed doing the activities but also felt the activities positively challenged their minds.”
Just like the body, the brain experiences changes in structure and function as a result of aging. While this is typical for everyone, there are positive lifestyle changes you can make to keep your mind sharper for longer. The Mind Fit Series, based on Home Care Assistance’s Cognitive Therapeutics Method™, draws upon existing research on enhancing mental acuity throughout the lifespan and introduces activities in a fun and engaging group format.
“Cognitive activities for the elderly help to keep their minds sharp and alert while reducing the risk or delaying the onset of age-related dementia. We at Atria Palm Desert have every desire to help the seniors live a longer, more independent lifestyle for as long as possible,” said Vicki Mariger, Executive Director at Atria Palm Desert.
