The Waterman Village Brain Wellness Academy for Seniors
Helping Mount Dora Area Seniors Stay Sharp & Feel Good
Many seniors have concerns about memory loss, but keeping your brain sharp involves more than being able to remember names. Improving brain function can positively impact your mood, your health, and your social interactions and relationships.
Under the direction of Colleen Connolly, our full-time coordinator, two-hour classes are held two days per week for eight weeks. In order to maximize benefits, classes are limited to 12 persons. The tuition includes all classes, activities and a textbook. All classes are open to the public!
Standard pre- and post-cognitive assessments are given for the participant’s benefit, helping them see changes that have occurred in their cognition over the eight weeks of the class. A pilot program of the Brain Fitness Class was researched by Adventist University of Health Science, which found that the class yielded a significant increase in seniors’ ability to cope with positive feelings and diminish depression (the number one illness among seniors).

Why participate in Brain Fitness?
What do participants in the Brain Fitness Class have to say about the experience? Here are just a sampling of the answers to the question, “How has the brain fitness class changed you?”
I have benefited greatly, both physically and in a return of my optimistic spirit. I’d regressed! I am not sure I fully recognized that before. – J.H.
I am trying to be more mindful, observant and attentive. I learned the importance of relaxation techniques. My piano playing exercises the brain. I am motivated to get back to my old habit of playing at least a half hour daily. Doing more physical exercises at home. – V.L.
My balance has improved. I rarely need to hang on to my chair during exercise time. It has encouraged me to continue with the exercises and become more aware of the good they do. – M.C.

I think Waterman Village is a great place to live. It has everything on premises - a nursing facility, assisted living apartments and independent villas which are roomy and beautiful. The staff is outstanding and the residents are like family. You can be as active and social as you choose or you can be by yourself. There is even a Bistro on premises which is a charming little cozy restaurant with good food. There are activities for everyone from cards, coffee socials, happy hours, lawn bowling, a fitness center and golf ,too. Don't wait too long to get here.
