During the month of March, the John Knox Village residents, staff, friends and family had the opportunity to experience many new ventures through our Second Annual ArtSage 2018. As we were all enjoying and experiencing these wonderful, fun and interesting events, did we realize how much growth and improvement we were providing to our brains?
I’m guessing it never crossed our minds, because we were having too much fun!
What was taking place with our brains and well-being while we were enjoying all of those events? We were engaging our brains and we were growing “neuroplasticity” and enhancing our overall well-being. The residents were taking charge of their brains and using them.
At John Knox Village, we are committed to the program and philosophy presented in Phyllis Strupp’s book, “Better with Age: The Ultimate Guide to Brain Training,” in conjunction with campus Train the Brain Workshops.
