Brain health and the various activities and steps that can be taken to improve or maintain good brain health at any age have become a focus of the medical community and wellness experts. It’s also an area of focus The Fitzgerald of Palisades, a Kisco Signature community, where we emphasize brain health every day. Our multifaceted environment is designed to promote and improve brain health.

The community’s programming begins with The Art of Living Well.® This comprehensive and multi-dimensional take on wellness within the community offers evolving programming that encourages residents to achieve their full potential. The Art of Living Well accomplishes this by embodying the nine dimensions of wellness — emotional, physical, occupational (purpose), social, creative, intellectual, mental, nutritional, and happiness — to encourage the ongoing development and fulfillment of residents to live healthy, purposeful lives. These focus areas are utilized to create programming that enhances a resident’s sense of independence and well-being. At The Fitzgerald, emphasizing these areas is integral to all levels of activities in the community.

The team at The Fitzgerald understands there are many components of wellness, but those that stand out are emotional and mental connections. According to experts, brain health can thrive on positivity, and with an increase in these positive signals, creative thinking, motivation, and intellectual adaptability can all be impacted. With this in mind, The Fitzgerald’s efforts are designed to enforce optimism, self-confidence, and positive energy.

Some scientists argue that intellectually stimulating activities may protect the brain by “establishing cognitive reserve.” Such activities could help the brain become more adaptable in some mental functions to compensate for age-related brain changes. With this in mind, The Fitzgerald will be a hub for personal growth and mental stimulation. From educational lecture series to immersive, literary and culinary programs, the community will exceed expectations. Our incomparable cultural experiences and intellectual programming will construct fulfilling opportunities for residents to engage with experts and experience unique privileges through our partners like The Library of Congress and International Spy Museum.

For all residents at The Fitzgerald, wellness is not just an activity, but a way of life that enables a full and vibrant lifestyle for all residents. The community is dedicated to ensuring that wellness – especially for the brain – is engrained in all they do to provide residents with an opportunity to live well.
