Cognitive Skills

What are Cognitive Skills?

Cognitive skills are brain functions that help us to learn, think, and do just about everything. As we age, cognitive decline is inevitable. Of course, memory skills are top at the list of worries with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. However, recent neuroscience research is showing that cognitive training can help in creating new neuron connections and strengthen processing speed, which can delay the on-set of various forms of dementia. At Brighter Path we use technology to help our active senior adult clients keep their cognitive skills sharp. We also offer interesting workshops and fun events to stay social! 


With our membership subscription, you get a professional baseline assessment, an individually planned program based on  your goals and specific cognitive needs, training with positive encouragement, data-driven changes as needed, and many other perks! Our members may also take advantage of discounts on individual sessions, seminars, and events. 


Cognitive skills training is the foundation to creating your Brighter Path!
