Preventing Dementia and Maintaining Optimal Brain Health
Our staff at the Lincoln Home are expert providers of professional, compassionate and loving residential care for people with all stages of diminished brain health, cognitive impairment, and dementia. More information on safe and secure memory care at Harbor View Cottage–>
We also are active in the community through our “Dementia Friendly Lincoln County” initiative, working with local businesses and teaching compassionate communication skills to their employees for meeting people with cognitive impairment.
There is much we can do to maintain Optimal Brain Health
This has led us to conduct a series of educational talks on “Preventing Dementia and Maintaining Optimal Brain Health.” What exactly is the difference between Normal Age Related Brain Changes and Mild Cognitive Impairment? Many people start worrying when they experience changes in their memory, and sometimes, people become depressed and anxious and become isolated in their concerns. However, we know that if you don’t talk about it, you can’t do anything about it. And the happy news is that there is a great deal you can do to keep your brain healthy and prevent cognitive impairment and dementia.
The next talks are scheduled for on September 19 and October 3. These free talks will run from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm, and a box lunch will be provided. The three talks are individual presentations offering a overview, with a different emphasis in each of the presentations.
The talk on September 19 will be a demonstration of the cognitive training program BrainHQ. There have been more than 100 scholarly papers and three major studies showing the effectiveness of this program for increasing Attention, Brain Speed, Visual and Auditory processing speed, People Skills, and Navigation. Please RSVP for September 19 or October 3 by email: email@example.com, or 563-3350.
A more in-depth Senior College course on the many aspects of Optimal Brain health will be offered at the Lincoln Home during February 2020.
Please RSVP by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 563-3350.
This is a “Spotlight on Seniors” presentation by Steve Raymond at the Lincoln Home on “Understanding Mild Cognitive Impairment: Scientific Evidence of Life Habit Changes that Help to Optimize Brain Health.”
