As we age, both our memory and cognitive abilities may decline. Alzheimer’s Disease International reports that more than 26% of those aged 85 and above in Greater China suffer some form of dementia. However, a growing body of scientific research performed over the past twenty years indicates that an active regimen of mental training can slow, if not regress, memory loss and cognitive decline. In fact, in 2010 the National Institute of Health in the U.S. issued a report indicating that ongoing, frequent memory training is associated with a decreased risk of developing cognitive decline.
In an effort to help our clients deal with the cognitive effects of the aging process, Life ExtensionTM offers the services of Occupational Therapists experienced in the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia. Employing a range of interactive exercises designed to enhance brain fitness and neural plasticity, our therapists will work with your loved one to improve memory and recognition, higher cognitive functioning and the performance of everyday tasks.
After an initial assessment, our Occupational Therapists will work with you in designing the best program of regular cognitive and memory exercises possible. After treatment begins, we will perform regular assessments to determine if progress is being made. Our goal is to not only enhance brain fitness, but also have enjoyable, engaging sessions to which your loved one looks forward.
