Chapel Hill, North Carolina (PressExposure) April 06, 2011 -- Family Health Network is proud to announce that its Connected for Life online program will now feature HAPPYneuron, Inc.'s Vital Games which are specifically designed for brain fitness for seniors. Seniors who are part of the program will now be able to maintain their cognitive health and increase their cognitive reserve by exercising their minds with HAPPYneuron's Vital Games. The ultimate goal is to enable these seniors to live healthier and more vital independent lives.
"Engaging in a brain healthy lifestyle has been clinically proven to defer the symptoms of brain decline, dementia and Alzheimers," said HAPPYneuron CEO Laura Fay. "Regular brain exercise is critical for seniors to age well and live independently as long as possible. Not only does this benefit older family members, but also their caregivers, both emotionally and financially. It allows more engaged time for birthdays, holidays, and other special family moments to be shared."
The Connected for Life program will provide seniors access to more than 20 of HAPPYneuron's Vital brain games for seniors. Each game is scientifically designed to target one or more of the 5 major cognitive functions of memory, language, attention, visual spatial skills and executive function. As seen with the Connected for Life program, the Vital games are specifically designed with seniors in mind. The games feature large buttons for visual ease. The games also help to encourage seniors to finish the activity by having no time limits and providing helpful hints and tips.
"HAPPYneuron is renowned for their work and research in the area of cognitive health," said CEO of Family Health Network, Harry Bailes. "Now, in addition to connecting seniors with family members and caregivers, we can offer them access to HAPPYneuron's Vital games that are educational and entertaining - the perfect combination to keep seniors engaged in a cognitive workout while in the comfort of their own homes."
The HAPPYneuron brain fitness programs help seniors to minimize the natural effects of brain aging by maximizing the brain's natural capacity to learn and its ability to adapt to new information. The programs were scientifically designed and developed by internationally known neurologist and neuropsychologist Bernard Croisile, M.D., Ph.D. In addition to the general body of brain research completed by its scientific team, HAPPYneuron has partnered with several independent research institutions to validate have the effectiveness of their brain training programs.
