Training Sessions at Piedmont Crossing Aim to Stimulate Senior Adults’ Brains

April 4, 2016

In partnership with Davidson County Senior Services, Piedmont Crossing will host Breakfast for your Brain training sessions from 2-4 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, April 5, 7, 12, and 14 in Unity Place on the Piedmont Crossing campus.

The complimentary sessions are open to adults, age 55 and older.

Mind stimulation exercises are important for brain health, just as exercise is important for your physical health. Most think that brains lose “power” as one ages, like a battery going dead. This is not true. The speed of the brain may slow down, but that often is the result of individuals not challenging themselves.

Breakfast for Your Brain was developed to encourage adults to stretch their thinking, try new ways of doing things, stimulate memory and develop creative minds. Four, two-hour, twice weekly sessions will focus on nutrition, how the brain works, humor, using visuals to stimulate — puzzles, optical illusions, creative art, eft/right brain activities, listening as a brain enhancer, expressing opinions — reminiscing exercises, word games and memory building exercises.
