Cognition and Focus
The Cognition and Focus activity track focuses on the mental processes often affected in age-related cognitive decline and mild cognitive impairment. We have all experienced the “it’s on the tip of my tongue” frustration or the forgetting of an important date or name. Our elders may deal with this in addition to a decline in concentration, math calculations, planning, processing, and reasoning. The Cognition and Focus activity track is designed to operate in a fun, success-oriented group setting based on the old adage that “if you don’t use it, you lose it”. It’s been our philosophy to work within the areas of strength of our elders to promote participation and engagement. Each session includes activities that make use of day/date orientation, music, and humor. Sessions may also contain drills that concentrate on attention, reasoning, processing, language, working memory, and long-term memory.
