Enriched Aging Enriched Aging
Programs for you and your loved one
Researchers and communities have been working together to find therapies for reducing cognitive decline and improving the quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers. The most promising interventions include music therapy, dance, physical exercise, equine assisted therapy, and other activities which stimulate the mind and body. The Enriched Environments for Healthy Aging Brains is here to provide enriching activities such as these that you can enjoy with your loved one. Participants in our programs have identified numerous positive benefits, such as connecting with community and spending time with their loved one.
The best cognitive health interventions involve mixed cognitive, social and physical enrichment. Our team represents a variety of disciplines (neuroscience, music therapy, creativity/design, communication studies, neuropsychology, sociology, and occupational therapy). We bring strong backgrounds in interventions associated with improving cognitive, well-being, or neural outcomes in healthy and aging populations. Our team is truly unique, trans-disciplinary, and dedicated to creating interventions that benefit our local community.
