Mother and DaughterEveryone wants to stay sharp, vital, independent, and in control. Participants at our College Avenue Center have the opportunity to! Participants can take part in brain fitness classes, designed to strengthen communication, memory, and thinking. Classes feature the Posit Science BrainHQ Program™—a breakthrough online-based technology designed by top scientists to improve memory and sharpen thinking.

“It just made me want to learn more, read more, study more, and play the piano more. My children said, ‘Mom, we really see a glimmer in your eye.’” -Sigrid, 70

The Posit Science BrainHQ Program™ is an innovative cognitive fitness program currently being implemented at leading retirement communities across the country. Jewish Family Service was one of the first agencies to implement this type of training program.

The Posit Science BrainHQ Program™ challenges the commonly held belief that the brain can’t retrain itself. Scientists have spent 30 years showing it is possible to “teach an old brain new tricks.” While this training program has been clinically validated, the most fascinating results are found in the stories of those who use the program. There are a number of older adults who have benefited from their mental workouts. Start with exercises in the category you most want to improve: memory, attention, brain speed, people skills, intelligence, or navigation.

“I am gaining confidence. I have found that words come easier. I seem to remember the book I’m reading more.”
-Marlene, 67
