Description
Research is showing that exercise enhances the process of neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new nerve connections) and may positively impact the progression of symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (tremor, stiffness, slowed movement and postural instability) and other neurodegenerative diseases. Learn about the life-long process of neuroplasticity, and how exercise may influence that process. Then, discover how to integrate key components of a group exercise class for people with Parkinson’s Disease into a fitness program. A preliminary model of adapting exercise for people with Alzheimer’s Disease will also be referenced.

Learning objectives

You will be able to:
Describe how exercise may enhance the process of neuroplasticity.
Use evidence to inform fitness recommendations for people with Parkinson’s disease.
Identify key components of a group exercise program for people with Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

Target audience
Wellness directors and coordinators
Fitness directors and exercise physiologists
Physical therapists and occupational therapists

Description
People join together in a group for lifelong learning programs, fitness, and social events, yet so much of brain health software is aimed at individual use. The weight of the brain health science suggests that social-based brain training interventions provide tremendous benefits across the cognitive continuum, including skills training, intellectual engagement and strategy learning. After a quick review of the science, you will learn how to use a social-based model in the development and implementation of brain health programs.

Learning objectives

You will:
Review the scientific value of social-based brain training
Explore a social-based brain training model
Learn how to apply social-based brain training in your setting

Who will benefit
Wellness directors
Activities and engagement staff
Recreational or occupational therapies
