Optimizing Your Quality of Life
Brain training is not a concept that most people are familiar with. If asked how to assess or improve our brain health, you probably couldn’t answer.
On the other hand, the importance of staying on top of our physical health is ingrained in us. We’re advised to exercise, monitor our blood pressure, keep our cholesterol in check and maintain a healthy weight.
According to the Ontario Brain Institute, 1 in 3 individuals will experience a brain disorder during their lifetime. This makes understanding our cognitive strengths and challenges, and monitoring changes over time all the more important.
As with physical health, early detection and treatment improves brain health outcomes. For those already experiencing brain dysfunction, better understanding means targeted treatment options, key to recovery and improving your quality of life.
Custom Brain Training Programs
Our team of occupational therapists works with you to understand your custom brain health profile and monitor your brain function, over time, through regular re-assessment. We will then create custom brain training programs to help you improve functioning in identified areas of challenge.
Historically, obtaining a comprehensive overview of brain health has been a long, challenging and often cost prohibitive process, which can limit access to intervention.
Our team uses the BrainFx 360 assessment tool to comprehensively measure and track your brain health. We can get a clear picture of your individual strengths and challenges using this powerful new assessment tool, suggest more targeted treatments and determine their effectiveness in helping to improve your quality of life.
Following comprehensive assessment, we create individualized cognitive stimulation and brain training programs. We create programs for people of all ages and all levels of ability – programs are developed in line with your unique brain health profile.
