ComForcare Home Care Services Offers Brain Fitness Programs
Corona California News Press Release
Sun City, California (PRWEB) August 18, 2011
Sun City, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2011– In a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, researchers found that memory, reasoning and processing speed can be improved by brain training. They also found that cognitive improvements persisted for at least five years.
The ComForcare brain fitness program uses a variety of computer software and online games and activities for adults of all ages to build cognitive ability and strengthen memory skills.
Partnering with CogniFit Ltd, a brain fitness product development company and world leader in cognitive assessment and training, ComForcare offers brain fitness software and online game options designed to meet individuals needs and can be used in clients homes or in independent or assisted living facilities. No previous computer experience or skills are required to get started and ComForcare can provide specially trained caregivers to assist clients in learning and using the program.
We are excited to introduce brain fitness programming to our clients, said Mike Eskine. We pride ourselves on providing the best care and resources for our clients and the CogniFit brain fitness programs are a perfect complement to the services we already offer.
The ComForcare brain fitness program by CogniFit is completely personalized for each client – no two people follow the same program. It is the only one of its kind that begins by the client taking a personal baseline assessment.
The results of this assessment determine the kind of training they most need. The program then creates a training system that charts the clients progress, providing useful feedback, and adjusts the activities and tasks to the persons skill level so the client remains engaged and challenged.
While brain training cannot reverse the progression of memory loss, studies have shown that repeated interaction with these games and activities can help improve memory. For most people, a 20 minute brain fitness session three times a week for eight weeks will produce a noticeable improvement in cognitive ability and memory.
Through our brain training programs, our clients can improve their memory in fun and entertaining ways that they may not otherwise have access to or even know exists, said Mike Erskine.
