"The Brain Fitness course demonstrates the magnificence of the brain and the necessity of keeping "brain fit". I now pay more attention to memory and use "tricks" or "hooks" to help with remembering names. I have come to realize that Brain Fitness is not a topic for seniors but an aspect of fitness that pertains to young adults as well as those in retirement. My investment in this course will be returned via brain-fit dividends!" -- Joanne L.

“As the Recreation Coordinator here at our Retirement Residence, it was recommended to me to enroll myself and four of our residents. We were not disappointed! In fact, we were inspired, challenged, stimulated and educated!!
We have now incorporated a “Brain Fitness” activity into our regular weekly calendar and it is extremely well attended. We enjoy the laughs, the movement, the mental stimulation and the social enjoyment. Thanks for spreading the vital message of keeping our brains alive!!” -- JILL (Recreation Coordinator)

“Thanks Dawn & Hanne—Lots of excellent material thoughtfully presented. I appreciated the pace and variety of the classes.” -- Joan D. (Teacher-librarian )
