Redefining "Senior Moments" - What are Cognitive Skills and How Does Brain Training Enhance Your Memory and Other Thinking Skills at Any Age?
Now you don't have to accept forgetfulness, lack of focus, or the inability to think clearly as an inevitable consequence of aging. Through stimulating and fun cognitive skills training, you can stave off age-related cognitive decline and even recover seemingly lost memory and thinking skills. Prior to the start of the course, participants will be asked to complete a complimentary 45-minute, online cognitive skills assessment, which will establish skill levels across seven cognitive constructs. In the first session, the team will explain the various skills tested and walk attendees through their own results report. In the second session, the team will take students through an interactive presentation on the role cognitive skills play in our everyday life, what the latest brain research shows about the changeability of those skills, and finally, demonstrations (with volunteers) of one-on-one brain-training exercises used to help eliminate the underlying problems that cause mental decline. Keep your mental fitness sharp as you age!

Bring an open mind and a willing attitude (leave your ego at home) as half the course will have us breaking into small groups doing actual one-on-one brain training exercises, led by LearningRx certified brain trainers.
