Super Noggin program focuses on brain health

The Commission on Aging, in cooperation with the Greenwich Senior Center is focusing on Brain Health in 2015 and is introducing “Super Noggin” to the community. Super Noggin is a comprehensive program offering a multi-faceted approach to learn and practice brain-healthy habits and track individual progress.

Super Noggin includes educational and motivational workshops; brain exercises to stimulate cognitive functions, a year’s worth of activities to encourage ongoing participation, and tracking individual progress in making healthy lifestyle choices. Components of the program promote cognitive challenges, physical exercise, good nutrition, social interaction, stress reduction and self-reflection.

Through a series of small group educational workshops Super Noggin educates about the lifestyle behaviors that contribute to brain health, builds in social interaction and mentally stimulating activities, and creates an environment where science meets fun.

This evidence based educational initiative is slated to commence in September at the Senior Center and Greenwich Main Library. All facilitators have been trained and certified to teach this engaging life enhancement program. Classes are limited to 15 participants. Cost for the nine-week session is $20 and includes workbook and all handouts. The course will begin at the Greenwich Library on Monday, Sept. 28 and at the Senior Center on Tuesday, Sept. 29. Each class will begin at 5:30 sharp and last 90 minutes.
