For more than 20 years, Baycrest’s Memory and Aging Program – a clinically validated, gold standard brain health workshop – has helped more than 1,000 healthy older adults. Now, it’s moving to the online world.
“Normal age-related memory decline can be a source of worry and frustration for many older adults. Baycrest’s Memory and Aging Program is one of the few brain health workshops for healthy older adults around the world that helps seniors take control of their memory change experience and optimize their brain health,” says Dr. Susan Vandermorris, a clinical neuropsychologist at Baycrest and lead for the Memory and Aging Program
The Memory and Aging Program has worked closely with e-learning experts, designers and program users to design an interactive, informative and practical e-learning experience.
“The online Memory and Aging Program workshop will allow us to share Baycrest’s expertise to anyone with an Internet connection,” Vandermorris says.
The Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation provided support to allow the program to be tested by older adults across Canada.
