The importance of maintaining excellent brain health is more important than ever as studies show the impact on quality of life. Being mentally active is a great way to keep our brains healthy, particularly as we approach our senior years.

Put on one of our virtual reality headsets and participate in brain-training exercises that are immersive and fun. We use the application "Alcove." You'll enter virtually a home, select a cube in the living room and have your choice of three brain training exercises. Within the hour, you may have time for all three!

Memory Wall

Select Memory Wall to train your recollection and improve short-term memory.

Hide & Seek

This VR game is designed to train your spacial orientation skills and particularly your auditory spatial cognition. 

Magic Deck

Use your memory and place the cards where they belong in this brain-training exercise.
