Aging well includes exercising regularly, having a healthy diet, and keeping your brain stimulated and challenged. Many seniors do not perform activities that challenge them to utilize key cognitive functions, such as memory, which can lead to deterioration in cognitive capacity and function over time. Digital cognitive therapy tools can be used to promote healthy aging in seniors by providing them with opportunities to stimulate cognitive functions that they may be under-using.
For seniors, using computerized training programs may help to improve global cognition, psychosocial functioning, and specific cognitive domains deficits associated with aging. Below is some of the research that has been conducted to examine the efficacy of computerized cognitive training programs in aging adults.

“I’ve been able to set up a lot of HappyNeuron Pro programs for clients who did not want to meet for therapy in person. What HappyNeuron Pro has allowed us to have is a structure so we could underpin the client’s day and start their day with HappyNeuron Pro. HappyNeuron Pro allowed us to engage with clients by allowing us to look at their scores and have a conversation around that…”
