Last week Videotelephony had the pleasure of shooting with a wonderful woman named Stephanie. We were working on a shoot for Fit Minds which offers cognitive health products to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The story that Stephanie told was a sad and beautiful one about her mother. Stephanie described to us what she went through as a caregiver and what her mother went through as well. As difficult as it was at times to talk about, the importance of understanding Alzheimzer’s and Dementia and what we all can do to prevent as well as help those suffering is something that is incredibly important.
The Fit Minds CEO, Nicole Scheidl has explained to us the importance of brain fitness. By combining Computation, Critical Thinking, Language, Memory, and Visual/Spatial Orientation, Fit Minds offers a kit that provides tools for those caring for people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The activities include simple games and exercises that can be done in homes or care centres helping to provide interactions that can really assist in healthy living.
We exercise our bodies so it is also important to exercise out minds. Fit Minds offers some fun
free stuff that everyone can try to exercise their brains!
