Program Information

About Our Cognitive 55+ Program

What is this Program?

The Cognitive 55+ Program is a unique Arrowsmith offering focusing on strengthening the Symbol Relations cognitive function. This program takes place at home online. Daily cognitive activity and regular online meetings with an Arrowsmith facilitator mean daily progress towards a stronger brain. 

Who Should Participate?

Our Cognitive 55+ Program is for those looking to keep their brains sharp. Suitable for those with cognitive challenges and those interested in building their cognitive reserve as they age. Please note this program will not halt or reverse neurodegenerative issues such as dementia or Alzheimer's.

 

Research Results

Studies show that the Symbol Relations Cognitive Program leads to structural and functional changes in the brain as well as significant cognition improvements such as memory, processing speed, attention, and reasoning.

What Are The Benefits?

Strengthening Symbol Relations capacity means a more powerful and positive capacity to grasp and process information quickly and to focus on and retain what is critical.

How Long Is This Program?

The Cognitive 55+ Program is 4 hours per week of training.  Most participants notice improvements within 3 months, and we recommend a 10 month commitment for best results.

Pricing

The Cognitive 55+ Program is only $500 CAD per month. Consider this an investment in your functioning, performance and quality of life!

Student Testimonial

"I had to admit to myself, reluctantly, that my memory had gotten much worse and my analytical capacities had deteriorated...

My advice for older people like myself who want to keep their brain functioning in the best possible way despite the natural aging process is definitely to try the program. I see the improvement from week to week."

– Frank (Arrowsmith School Student)

The Impact Of The Arrowsmith Program

Research Presentation

 

 

Studies show that this Cognitive Program leads to structural and functional changes in the brain as well as significant cognition improvements such as memory, processing speed, attention, and reasoning.

 

We’ve begun analyzing both using brain imaging and neuropsychological measures with students… there are a lot of significant changes – overall significance – but also individual significance.
