After being introduced to someone, do you forget that person’s name before the introductory conversation is over? Can you recall what you ate for breakfast yesterday morning? Have you ever gone on a grocery store run only to find upon arriving home you forgot to purchase two important items? The brain is a complex storage device and it is programmed, in a sense, to remember certain pieces of information and to discard other bits of information. But sometimes there is information you want to remember that your brain conveniently forgets so what we have to do is tell or train our brains what is important to remember.
This engaging and interactive session is led by Beverly Engel, who has nearly 30 years in creating innovative training and educational programs designed to promote health and wellbeing for elders and their caregivers. This session will review the many strategies and techniques that can enhance your memory for information you want to retain. While it is easy to forget and much harder to remember, these tips and tricks will help you keep your memory on track.
This program is presented by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
