Mind Fit

We don’t just care about our residents happiness and their quality of life but also delaying cognitive decline. It is a fact that as we get older, our cognitive abilities become impaired.

That’s why we partner with Mind Fit.

Mind Fit comes from the Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM), which is a non-pharmacological, activities-based program which targets the 5 domains affecting brain health to promote optimal well-being for older adults. The Mind Fit approach is grounded in scientific research which has shown that older adults who participated in mentally stimulating activities and remained socially active maintained lasting benefits in cognition and independence.

Mind Fit utilizes a holistic approach to brain-healthy aging and is individualized and appropriate for older adults who are not experiencing any cognitive health concerns to those who are experiencing symptoms associated with neurodegenerative conditions.

Below are the 5 domains we work on in improving cognitive abilities. 

Executive Functioning — includes cognitive abilities such as reasoning, problem solving, and thought flexibility.

Attention — refers to the ability to focus on a specific piece of information for a long period of time while ignoring distractions.

Language — refers to the ability to execute verbal functions including spontaneous speech, speech comprehension, name, reading, and writing.

Visual-Spatial Perception — involves the ability to accurately perceive an object’s physical location and understand the relationships between objects.

Memory — refers to the ability to retain information and utilize at a later time.
