Brain Exercise Initiative

Brain Exercise Initiative seeks to help senior citizens with their cognitive ability by facilitating simple brain exercises 3 times a week, 30 minutes a day. Research has shown that when simple math, reading, and writing tasks are given 3 times a week for 30 minutes a day, the cognitive ability of seniors, particularly those with Alzheimer's, significantly improves. We will focus on building relationships with senior assisted living communities in the Lexington area and help our seniors with these simple brain exercise packets. Brain Exercise Initiative started at UCLA when an undergrad learned about the positive effects of brain exercise packets for senior citizens, it has since expanded to over 50 chapters nationwide. W&L student volunteers will travel to the senior assisted living homes (zoom initially, in person when safe to do so) and help seniors with these brain exercise packets. The goal of this organization is to develop a strong relationship with assisted living communities in the Lexington area and help improve the senior's cognitive ability.
