Memory Training | Clearwater | Florida | Brain Fitness of Florida

Memory training in Florida is a hot topic, likely because the state has the largest population of adults over the age of 65. And almost 40% of people over the age of 65 experience some form of memory loss.

Are You a Candidate for Memory Training in Florida?

Memory training is not specific to adults over the age of 65. Some of our clients are looking to make improvements in their cognitive abilities. Some want to be sharper for their careers, in meetings, interviews, and working with clients. Others have suffered a traumatic brain injury. We also have many clients with Alzheimer’s disease.  

Many want to take precautionary and preventive action. If you’ve ever witnessed a loved one suffer from memory loss, you understand the want to keep your brain from experiencing this kind of decline. 

No matter what your age is, if you’re experiencing any of the following, you may benefit from a memory training program at Brain Fitness Centers of Florida:

  • It takes you longer to complete simple tasks.
  • You forget essential information you would have previously recalled easily.
  • Recalling conversations is difficult.
  • You feel anxious, and it’s preventing you from doing things you enjoy.
  • You struggle with word recall.
  • Driving worries you.
  • You continuously misplace or lose household objects, keys, etc.
  • You no longer feel able to pay bills or balance your checkbook.

Many people under the age of 65 also experience these kinds of warning signs. Early detection and early treatment can help slow the cognitive decline attributing to these signs. For this reason, we recommend a neurocognitive assessment. Neurocognitive assessments are just as necessary as regular cancer screenings and monitoring blood pressure. We recommend you take our online test to find out where you’re performing cognitively.

How Does a Memory Training Program Work?

If any of the above scenarios apply to you, give us a call at (727) 608-7378 to schedule a neurocognitive assessment. This is the first step in improving your cognitive skills.

When you come in for your appointment at our Clearwater, Florida office, we’ll start with an assessment using state of the art equipment and a consultation with the doctor. This gives us an understanding of where you are currently. Then, Dr. Scranton, will review the results with you and discuss any issues and how we can help improve them.

Once we know how we can help, he’ll prescribe your individualized memory training plan. This tailored plan will utilize advanced clinical techniques and medically proven brain training exercises that focus on your areas of improvement. It will include everything from brain exercises, stress management, physical wellness, and nutrition.

Once we have your plan in place, we’ll work with you on a training schedule and set you up with a coach. Then, your coach will work with you one-on-one and help fine-tune your program if necessary. Over the next several weeks, we’ll meet to perform the exercises together and give you resources, tools, and exercises you can do at home. Consistent practice will help to keep you sharp and ensure the exercises are working as they should. 

When the training program is complete, you’ll meet again with Dr. Scranton to review the results of your assessment. After assessing your results, we’ll move forward with the next phase – at-home exercises and periodic office visits. These office visits will ensure we continually monitor your cognitive functions, and you’re enjoying a higher-level quality of life.
