BE! Brain Enrichment Program
October 1,2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Monday, repeating until November 5, 2018
This popular program will return this fall: Brain Enrichment
The 90-minute, weekly Brain Enrichment program is now accepting registrants for the 8-week program starting on Monday, September 17, 10:00 AM.
BE! Brain Enrichment is an interactive educational experience for adults with normal age-related memory changes. Research shows that continued participation in mentally stimulating activities throughout the lifespan can help slow cognitive decline and has the potential to reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. In eight, 90-minute interactive sessions participants:
-Learn about the brain’s processes of attention, working memory, long-term memory, reasoning, and problem-solving
-Participate in mental exercises to engage and stimulate the brain
-Learn about lifestyle practices for maintaining brain health
-Practice strategies for improving thinking and memory
One goal of this course is for participants’ learning to transfer to tasks of daily living such as attention, word-finding, remembering names, and planning.
This class series will be held at Eldercare Services.
For this session, the cost is $40 for Lamorinda Village members and $60 for nonmembers.
