Help Your Brain Stay Strong
In response to COVID-19, we are offering many of our Brain Fit Club services, including individual assessments and most groups, via telehealth. New and existing members can now participate in our programs from their homes through the use of HIPAA compliant audio/video platforms provided by BIDMC. If interested in our telehealth services, please call us at 617-667-4074 to schedule a virtual appointment.
Everyone knows that habits like exercise, sleep, a healthy diet, and stress reduction are good for our bodies. There are also healthy habits that are good for our brains. The right kind of mental activity, social engagement, and brain-specific exercises can help aging brains stay healthy and injured brains heal faster.
As a Brain Fit Club member, you’ll start with a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation. The team will then develop an individualized plan based on your brain health profile. Your success is continuously monitored and your plan adapted to accommodate your changing needs.
Dedicated Staff Support
At the BFC, we integrate education and personalized care to keep members’ brains limber and active. Just as a physical fitness club provides group instruction, personal trainers, exercise equipment, and training studios, the BFC is a dedicated space where specialized staff members teach, train, and motivate members. You will always find a BFC staff member on-site to be able to assist you and answer any questions you may have.
You'll enjoy our staff support, but isn’t it always better to work out with a partner? Socialization through peer support (via formal and informal groups and moderated blogs) is central to the BFC, both to keep members motivated and because research shows that social support is essential to cognitive and physical well-being.
Because it’s important for people of all ages and mental capacities to keep their brains fit, we developed services that are individually tailored to each person’s need. Some might benefit from participating in computer-based training programs, while others may find that mindfulness meditation or tai chi will help their brains stay strong. When you come in for your initial assessment, we’ll be sure to develop a program that’s right for you.
