"Vigorous Mind has become an important part of the residents’ activities both as a group and as individuals. Our social workers report that participation in the games and the weekly stories is high, and the reminiscence activities really get residents who are typically very quiet, talking. The one-on-one activities with several of the nursing home residents are having a great effect on their mood and you can tell how excited they are when it comes time for their turn on Vigorous Mind. Vigorous Mind has clearly been improving their quality of life!

Overall we are very pleased with the program and your team’s support and I would gladly recommend it to other senior living facilities and would be happy to invite them to see our residents in action."
