Memory, problem solving, attention, and processing speed are some of the cognitive functions that can decline with age. As we grow older, leave school, and retire, we are no longer learning new material and stimulating the brain. The brain, similar to a muscle, needs to be used or it will not function optimally. Eating a healthy diet and exercising are some of the ways to maintain a healthy brain. But the brain is also remarkably nimble and new connections can be created regardless of age.

Brain Fitness works to engage the brain in innovative ways in a variety of cognitive areas and can help create new connections between neurons and increase mental acuity. Diversifying the cerebral activities in which you engage is key to your overall brain health.


Schoke JFS’s Brain Fitness program targets a variety of cognitive areas to help stimulate the brain.

  • Stimulate your brain power
  • Diversify your mental workout
  • Learn about your brain and how it functions
  • Engage in fun activities while you stretch your mind.

Cognitive areas addressed:

  • Memory
  • Visual-spatial
  • Organizational
  • Attention
  • Language
  • Logic
  • Perception
  • Problem solving and reasoning

These interactive programs, engage the mind in thoughtful ways. Word play, puzzles, memory games, and problem-solving activities can enhance your brain power and are fun ways to challenge yourself. Strategies for improving your skills are also discussed during these sessions, and participants share which techniques they find most effective.

Finding multiple ways to problem solve and approach tasks improves mental flexibility as well. The sessions are designed for a range of ages and abilities which can be adjusted based on the participants.


Private or semi private (2-3 people) sessions are available. Tailor your sessions to the cognitive areas that you want to work on. We aim to provide a meaningful experience for clients and families by focusing on insight, inspiring confidence, and providing practical support that directly aligns with their personal experience and goals.
