Inside Elder Care to Appear at Brookdale’s Brain Symposium

Brookdale Senior Living has invited me to be one of only a handful of resources at their groundbreaking “Cross-Train Your Brain” Conference.

The conference will take plan on May 12, 2009 at UCLA and will focus on elder memory issues and how to keep the mind strong and sharp.  They event will open with a keynote address by Dr. Gary Small, MD, memory expert and author of several books including his latest, “iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind.”

Brookdale has put together what I expect to be a VERY informative set of breakout sessions, including:

  • Nutrition and Brain Fitness
  • Tai Chi
  • Making Music for Brain Health
  • Yoga for the Brain
  • Stress Management and Brain Health
  • Brain Fitness
  • Jogging for the Brain

The event will close with an address from Dr. Kevin O’Neil, MD entitled “Cross-Train Your Brain.”

I am obviously pleased to be one of the handful of elder care resources on display at the event.  Brookdale will be raffling off a number of copies of the “By Families, For Families Guide to Assisted Living.”

I’ll be donated a portion of all book purchases to the Alzheimer’s Association.
