Brain Training

Gunnedah Shire Library NSW GUNNEDAH

Monday August 28th - Monday September 11th

The Brain Training in the Library programme at Gunnedah Shire Library is a joint partnership GOCO(Community Care) /Library initiative. It’s open to people of all ages and seeks to assist participants to stimulate brain activity by offering a series of timed activities.

The programme assists older people to participate in community life and feel socially included through structured, group-based activities that develop, maintain or support independent living and social interaction. Brain health, physical and emotional wellbeing are at the forefront of this project. Teaching people to exercise their brains is an essential way to empower people to live independently for as long as they can, ease the strain on our health and residential aged care systems, and enable the community to improve.

The activities presented target memory, visual observation, pattern recognition, vocabulary, logical thinking, decision making, creativity, number skills, non-dominant hand use, comprehension, and fine motor skills in a cheerful and supportive setting. Activities include code breaking, spot the differences or find the objects, memory training, mazes, drawing or cutting out with the non-dominate hand, comprehension and word games such as know the definition. Origami, Zen doodling and computer games such as Speed Scrabble and Jigsaw of the Day are also available.
