About the Event
Brain Boosters is a brain tune-up by Memory Matters. The course will take place on May 3rd, 10th and 17th from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. each week at Okatie Pines Retirement Community in Okatie. All adults lose brain cells as we age, but the good news is that each person has the power and ability to improve their overall brain health despite their age. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize neural pathways from experience. Recent brain imaging technologies show that as you receive input through your senses with frequency, intensity, and duration, the brain physically changes structure. How? Brains physically react and adapt in response to challenge. Once structure changes, function can change. Put simply, “neuroplasticity” is the brain’s ability to change when it’s learning something new that is challenging, like brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand.
For more than 24 years, Memory Matters has been providing a break (respite) to caregivers. Memory loss has an impact on the entire family. That’s why Memory Matters developed a brain-training curriculum for everyone. Since 2006, Brain Boosters has been helping people maximize their brain power, which is why Brain Boosters is offered multiple times a year.
“How to” steps are part of the classes and include: ways to sharpen focus, creating a brain-health lifestyle, relaxing the brain, becoming a flexible thinker, memory-enhancing techniques, and how worry affects the brain.
In order to graduate from the course, students must be present all three weeks. The cost for all three weeks is $99 per person.
