One-On-One Cognitive Coaching: The Personal Trainer for the Mind™

Do you have a loved one in your life whom you care about? There are a variety of ways to show that love and concern, whether the person is living independently or in a senior living community. You call. You send cards. You visit when you can. You stay connected. Your behaviors show that you care deeply about maintaining this senior’s quality of life. But there’s another way to show you care, especially if you have a loved one with dementia.


It’s one-on-one cognitive coaching through Fit Minds’ Personal Trainer for the Mind™ program. Think of it as akin to a personal trainer for your body. Our certified Fit Minds coaches meet regularly with seniors to provide cognitive lessons that have been customized to the person’s current abilities in five key areas:

  • Language and music
  • Visual/spatial orientation
  • Memory
  • Critical thinking
  • Computation

If you’re caring for a loved one with dementia, you are probably already looking for ways to maintain that person’s quality of life. Our Personal Trainer for the Mind™ cognitive coaching program extends beyond rote memorization tasks or doing the same games repeatedly. The program is based on research findings that validate the impact of regularly challenging people with novel content to help them maintain and even possibly improve their cognitive ability.

Countless studies suggest, in addition to maintaining cognitive function, this type of stimulation may help reduce the risk of developing dementia. Research also suggests that cognitive coaching may stabilize and possibly even improve the cognitive function of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Benefits of the Personal Trainer for the Mind

When your loved one works with a certified Fit Minds coach, he or she receives:

• Cognitive coaching exercises customized to his or her current abilities

• A meaningful, positive relationship between the loved one and his or her coach

The benefits of cognitive coaching can be significant for both the Fit Minds client and family members. The client benefits from regular cognitive stimulation, which research suggests will help him or her stay mentally sharp and engaged. The client also benefits from a supportive relationship with an educated coach capable of engaging him or her intellectually. The combination of mental stimulation and meaningful engagement cannot only impact cognitive function, but can help improve quality of life for people diagnosed with dementia.  Finally, family members receive monthly reporting and feedback about the senior’s cognitive functioning and engagement.

Fit Minds life changing mental stimulation not only impacts the senior’s life, but also the family members. Sons and daughters, and spouses and siblings who give this program to someone they love are rewarded with the knowledge that they’re helping their loved one stay as cognitively engaged as possible — addressing both their loved one’s dementia and quality of life. Our unique offerings are designed to support and help people with a wide range of cognitive abilities — from independent seniors to those with mild, moderate or advanced dementia. It lets you take a loving approach to dementia care.

As research continues to validate the efficacy of brain training for dementia, Fit Minds remains confident we will fulfill our mission of improving quality of life, enabling meaningful relationships with family and friends, and building cognitive resilience for seniors.

“I cried tears of joy when I saw my mom interacting with her granddaughters…This was the first time she acted like a grandma in two years.”

– Cindy Larvie, daughter of a woman diagnosed with dementia
