Care for the Mind and Body
Accumulating evidence shows that it is possible to ward off age-related decline in cognitive function by means of regular mental exercise and physical activity. Both of these activities increase blood flow to a variety of areas within the brain, and in doing so, encourage brain cell vigor and growth.
Additionally, it has been shown that socialization, reduced stress, proper nutrition, and adequate sleep help the individual bolster their functional abilities.
Active Mind, Sound Mind
In addition to the preventive and protective role of continued mental activity, some of the tasks in the Touch of Heart™ program have an immediate effect on daily functioning, as residents practice vocabulary and refresh computation skills used in everyday life.
A Touch of Heart™ also provides opportunities to socialize and interact with others, reduce stress, and maintain a cognitively challenging lifestyle.
Furthermore, A Touch of Heart™ enables the user to experience progress and a sense of accomplishment. In doing so, it promotes a positive sense of well-being – a positive emotional state that enhances cognitive stability as one ages.
