Your brain is kinda important! And as we age, our brain function can change. Our Country Meadows Village community is excited to offer a Brain Health program that will feature amazing speakers and offer strategies to improve cognitive capabilities.
Our Brain Health Program will start with a three-series program led by renowned brain-health expert Cathy Parkinson, CQSW, Dip Counseling. Originally from England, Parkinson began her career specializing in dementia care after being introduced to Professor Graham Stokes how taught her his innovative approach to caring for people with dementia.
Parkinson is a Master Trainer in the inventive "Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care." A Behavior Specialist for the State of Oregon and Brain Wellness Instructor, Parkinson has extensive knowledge and experience of comprehensive tactics to help provide knowledge and understanding of how to grow your brain young.
Starting June 17, Parkinson will lecture, answer questions, and distribute homework to our guests. And for every completed homework assignment guests will be eligible to win a Brain Basket raffle filled with brain healthy prizes.
And for the rest of the year we will continue our program with other guest speakers the first and third Monday of the month with specialized informative talks over a great range of topics. Learn about how your brain reacts to over-the-counter medications or does organic food make a difference with your brain?
