The Keep in Mind cognitive coaching approach focuses on key areas of cognition:
  • Executive Function
     
  • Multitasking
     
  • Language
     
  • Music
     
  • Memory
     
  • Critical Thinking
     
  • Computation
     
  • Visual Orientation

These workouts address more than just memory. Scientific research has shown that individuals who suffer from a cognitive impairment like Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia respond more effectively to a globalized approach than to a training program that focuses specifically on one cognitive function or deficit. 

 

By addressing key areas of cognition, the individual stretches and exercises all areas of brain function, thereby, allowing engagement in areas of strength and encourages work on areas where they may be more challenged.

We believe in a fun, no pressure approach to brain fitness. Our way of coaching puts the emphasis on the process of thinking and not the resulting answer. This means that the individual can build a relationship of trust with the coach, can improve self confidence, and be more willing to be guided into areas that are more challenging, thereby stretching the brain.
