Brain training to improve neuroplasticity

Hundreds of scientific papers prove the importance of brain training. Some programmes reduce the risk of dementia by nearly 50% ten years after regular training, more than any drug ever has. Our cognitive training sessions enhance neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to form and recognise synaptic connections), which is crucial to learning and to alleviate depression. We use physical in-person brain exercises and also computers and specialised software proven to speed up restoration of memory and logical thought patterns.

Arts, crafts & music for emotional management

Tactile experiences help to control stress and enhancing relaxation. They also enable us to fail safely and handle our emotions. Our workshops include:

  • Thematic guided painting - bear brick, batik, acrylic, 3D, watercolours

  • Therapeutic horticulture - ikebana, flower arranging, herb garden 

  • Food memory stimulation - cooking, baking, pastry making 

  • Tactile activities - making soaps, lotions, batik, fabric and paper crafting

  • Immersive actions - music therapy, vocalisations, instrumentation

  • Giving back - volunteerism with selected partner NGOs in Klang Valley

Exercise & resistance training to prevent falls

We lead our lives sitting at a desk, in front of a TV, on the sofa, watching videos on our mobile phones. Research shows that sitting is detrimental to cognitive and physical health. Our focus is to get seniors working out in high-oxygen environments and regular exercise to build core strength. This is to avoid future falls and blackouts. It is also crucial to reduce insulin resistance and increase the size of the hippocampus, both needed in the effort to beat dementia. We dedicate at least 60 minutes to this through:

  • Nature walks

  • Weight training

  • Pilates & yoga

  • Body movement & awareness 

  • Physio & posture stabilisation

Tailored meals to reverse mental decline

Food is critical to brain function. Our low glycemic index, heart-healthy foods are ideal for diabetics and blood pressure management. The objective is to reduce inflammation, heal the gut, balance hormones and eliminate consumption of toxins as part of reversing mental decline.

 

Our Awake Minds meals are well-rounded, delicious and make eating exciting again. Enjoy a different cuisine daily - Chinese, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Korean, Italian and more. You can also subscribe to our meal package even if you don't join our trainings - limited packs are available; priority is for caregivers or people with severe afflictions.
