Everyone knows that exercise, adequate sleep, a healthy diet, and stress reduction are good for our bodies. There are also habits that are good for our brains. The right kind of mental activity, social engagement, and brain-specific exercises can help aging brains stay healthy and injured brains heal faster.

How can we keep our brains and our minds the best they can be?

The Brain Fit Club was developed with this question in mind. Because it’s important for people of all ages and mental capacities to keep their brains fit, services have been developed that are individually tailored to each person’s specific needs. Some benefit from computer-based training, while others may find that mindfulness meditation or Tai chi help their brains stay strong.

In response to COVID-19, we are offering many of our Brain Fit Club services, including individual assessments and most groups, via telehealth. New and existing members can now participate in our programs from the safety of their homes through the use of HIPAA compliant audio/video platforms provided by BIDMC. If interested in our telehealth services, please contact us to schedule a (virtual) appointment.
