17.04 to 26.06 | Cycle of Memory Workshops

After we retire and remove the pressures of work, we use a minimum percentage of neurons, and it´s necessary to activate those that aren´t in use. There´s scientific evidence that cognitive stimulation works as a protective barrier, slowing down the development of cognitive deterioration and dementias.

This brain stimulation program is based on cognitive reserve and neuronal plasticity, aiming to improve mental performance through exercises and skills training.
The activities presented combine different therapeutic exercises, rehabilitation and learning techniques.

Led by the Grad. Ps. Ana Charamelo.
Upcoming dates: 7.08 to 09.10


03.04 to 12.06 and 19.04 to 21.06 | Know how to age and prevent dependency
There are 10 workshops in which we´ll discuss issues of interest for the elderly to achieve a healthy and active life.
Some of the topics we´ll discuss will be, for example, how to prevent memory problems and stay mentally active, healthy eating, good sleep, recreational activities and social bonding, the importance of exercise, among others.

From 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
In charge of: Grad. Ps. Ana Charamelo
