Senior housing operator Senior Lifestyle Corp. (SLC) has launched a program designed to encourage mental engagement through novelty, variety and challenge, which the company is calling Brain Health University. The curriculum consists of 30 programs over a 60-day period and is designed to boost brain health through an assortment of experiences and lifestyle choices. Classes include physical activity, nutritional information, stress management, cognitive stimulation and social interaction.

SLC’s Terry Fay assisted in the development of the program. “Brain health can be sought at any age. Participants will learn and experience practices that can aid brain health and support an independent lifestyle and greater quality of life,” she said.

Brain Health University is offered at SLC locations in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Residents who complete 18 of the 30 courses receive a certificate of completion and are feted for their accomplishment.
