Seniors & Disability

Our programs benefit seniors and those affected by stroke, dementia, autism, acquired brain injury, MS, Parkinson’s disease and intellectual disabilities.

Improve cognition, balance, coordination, memory, reading, focus, motivation, concentration and healthy daily living.

The movements stimulate clear and focused thinking. They are quick, easy and adaptable for individuals of all abilities, from active seniors through to the very elderly and wheelchair bound.

Case Study

Discover the success stories of participants in the Brain Gym program.

Based on true events. Persons name changed to protect privacy.

Gladys is 80 years old and lives in residential aged care. She suffers from dementia and balance concerns.

The centre where she lives runs a number of activity programs each week. One of these programs is called, ‘Quiz’. It is a game where the residents are asked questions and they can guess what the answer is. This activity aims to support and engage memory function in the residents.

Prior to Brain Gym, Gladys didn’t attempt to answer any of the questions. However, after participating in the Brain Gym program she was able to answer all the questions, week after week.

“I don’t know how I knew the answers, they just came… and I won the chocolate!” – Gladys

Gladys stimulated whole brain function and memory during her Brain Gym session and showed a significant cognitive improvement for days after.

“Katharine provides small weekly group sessions at Park Lane. She has great rapport with the group and ensures her sessions are upbeat, fun, engaging, and tailored for varying abilities. Participants report feeling more “switched on” and mentally alert for the rest of the day.”

– Cameron Willoughby, Director of Park Lane Aged Care
