Nearly 2/3 of older adults live with some form of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). Past beliefs state that this is a natural occurrence and nothing can be done. “Brain Fitness” classes have been implemented in senior centers and communities but with little to no results. Online memory games are marketed to improve cognition but in reality only help improve the players capacity for that skill.
Leading research now shows that the principle of Neuroplasticity and a variety of lifestyle changes can delay, prevent and in some cases, reverse the effects of MCI. Learn about these fantastic new findings and what you can do to keep your mind sharp and young! The instructor, Chris Ratay, is the Activities & Fitness Director at Sierra Winds Senior Community in Peoria. Chris has been working with Older Adults since 2011 and is passionate about improving the lives of this demographic!
