Cognitive Impairment

Cognitive Impairment

With our aging population, particularly in South Florida, MIND & MOBILITY home care experts see varying levels of cognitive impairment that it routinely deals with, and more than adequately. Yet the sooner cognitive impairment or memory loss is detected, the more rapid your MIND & MOBILITY health care provider can partner with your senior loved one to become stronger both mentally and physically.

At three of MIND & MOBILITY’S outpatient facilities, clients have a unique opportunity to benefit by the computerized “Brain Gym.” With a click of the mouse, clients are able to test their cognitive abilities while occupational therapists evaluate progress. Caregivers can discover a client’s baseline, with the understanding that these routinely challenging “mind games” can assist your mom or dad or special someone.

Call us at Miami, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale & West Palm Beach, FL Centers right away to learn more about our Brain Gym and to set up an appointment with our Intake Specialists. A first visit, valued at $150, is free!

Our Physical Therapists Lead the Charge

MIND & MOBILITY physical therapists have long understood the extraordinarily high value of exercise on brain cognition. An ever-growing body of scientific evidence strongly supports that exercise slows aging, prevents age-related diseases and increases life expectancy. According to the Asian Journal of Sports Medicine, exercise also has beneficial effects on brain functions, including plasticity promotion and learning and memory enhancement. This data affirms that exercise leads to genetic changes associated with neuronal activity, and neurotransmitter’s ability in memory processing.

As similar evidence pours in, it is becoming more understood that exercise reduces insulin resistance, reduces inflammation and stimulates the release of growth factors – chemicals in the brain that effect the health of brain cells, the growth of new blood vessels in the brain, and even the abundance and survival of new brain cells. This, according to a Harvard University neurologist.
