Event Details

Cognitive Fitness for the Fit Senior"

Presented by Douglas Downs, Occupational Therapist and Certified Brain Injury Specialist

The cognitive rehabilitation therapists at Kessler Rehabilitation Center work with people who have difficulty with their thinking skills as a result of medical problems such as stroke, accident, and a host of diseases that can affect the brain. But just because most of us haven’t experienced any of these medical situations doesn’t mean that we can’t all benefit from tips and tricks to keep our brains healthy. Just like we all know it’s important to exercise to keep our bodies fit, similarly it’s important to exercise our brains as well. And the fancy name for “brain exercise” is Cognitive Fitness. Join this presentation to learn how you can keep your brain healthy and strong!

Douglas Downs is an Occupational Therapist and Certified Brain Injury Specialist who has been with Kessler since graduating from NYU’s OT school in 1995. He has worked in both the inpatient and outpatient rehab environments primarily treating stroke and brain injury, and is a member of Kessler’s Revital cancer rehabilitation team as well. Most recently, Doug has also been treating patients recovering from COVID-19. His specialties include vision and cognition. Doug enjoys interacting with his patients and watching them improve as he guides them along their rehab journey.
