Cognitive Stimulation For Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging

Why use Cognitive Stimulation for healthy aging?

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.

Does it work?

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.
