FirstLight Home Care and Ageless Grace partner on brain fitness program
It’s never too early to start doing whatever it takes to keep your brain young, healthy and active. Sustaining healthy brain function and keeping the mind sharp at any age may be more important than you think.
“There have been several studies on the impact of how maintaining a healthy brain can help prevent early dementia and even diseases such as diabetes,” stated Jeff Bevis, CEO and Co-Founder of FirstLight Home Care.
FirstLight is thrilled to announce that it is expanding its services to include Ageless Grace, an innovative program that can help individuals maintain a healthy brain. We have already begun offering Ageless Grace training to our franchise owners and managers so that they may, in turn, train our caregivers. The customized curriculum was developed by Denise Medved, founder and creator of Ageless Grace, specifically for FirstLight Home Care.
Innovative Brain Fitness Program
Bevis says the company plans to continue educating FirstLight franchise owners across the country with the goal of offering the Ageless Grace program to FirstLight clients in up to 100 markets by mid-2019.
“We love the program’s anti-aging focus that helps improve overall health and well-being, reduce stress, keep the brain agile and the body responsive. It’s all about improving the quality of life for our clients, especially those with cognitive deficits.”
Ageless Grace is a cutting-edge brain fitness program that is meant to exercise the body and stimulate the brain. The exercises, based on neuroplasticity, activate all five functions of the brain – analytical, strategic, kinesthetic learning, memory/recall, creativity and imagination. The Ageless Grace program consists of 21 simple exercises focused on natural, everyday movements and is designed for all ages and abilities.
Exercises Based on Neuroplasticity
Medved created Ageless Grace based on her own experience with her parents’ health and observing the different ways they were aging. She wondered if there was a way to keep both the body and the brain healthy as we age. Medved spent seven years with a Duke University-affiliated hospital and a university graduate department to develop this creative approach to aging.
“Brain health is the ability to remember, learn, play and maintain an active mind,” said Medved. “It’s all about capitalizing on the strengths of your brain and helping to reduce some of the risks to it as you age. The Ageless Grace exercises, which are based on neuroplasticity, address all 21 physical skills needed for lifelong optimal brain function, and each of the tools emphasizes different anti-aging techniques.”
