Aging is not a reason to lose brain ability.  The brain does not age like the body.  The brain starts to get older when you stop using it.  Remember if you don't use it, youll loose it!!!  At Agewell we recommend to our senior citizens that they incorporate small changes into their daily lives to exercise and stimulate the braiin.

We want you to understand that overall brain fitness can be achieved by maintaining a variety of brain activities that stimulate it.
