MyWay Village CEO Sarah Hoit and Dr. Paul Nussbaum to Co-Present on Brain Health and Changing the Face of Aging

Aging in America Is Changing!

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  MyWay Village, a leading provider of Connected Living Programs to seniors and Dr. Paul Nussbaum, author of "Save Your Brain: 5 Things You Must Do to Keep Your Mind Young and Sharp" will be co-presenting their findings on the changing face of aging in America on Monday, June 28, 2010 from 5:00 - 7:30 pm at The Castle at Boston University.

Connected Living's unique combination of simplified technology and personal support -- "High- Tech High-Touch" -- has proved to be a winning combination to getting seniors across the digital divide. In doing so, the learning of new skills, socialization, sense of purpose and independence it engenders are all key components of leading a Brain Healthy Life. 

"We are witnessing a significant change in the way seniors are aging and as a company dedicated to enhancing their lives through online socialization and use of the Internet, we are excited to see the dramatic shifts taking place," said Sarah Hoit, CEO and Co-founder of MyWay Village. "The Connected Living program creates a unique blend of cognitive, emotional and social stimulation where members learn new skills, maintain existing skills and build larger social networks, all key for healthy aging."

Nussbaum is a leading authority on aging and has studied the effects of dementia and Alzheimer's in seniors. He has written about ways to keep the brain healthy especially in this older population. He will discuss this topic and sign copies of his book.

"Having a social network keeps the brain stimulated and is critical to maintaining brain health," said Dr. Paul Nussbaum. "Connected Living offers socialization and mental stimulation, two key components."

The Connected Living Brain Health program supports Nussbaum's research. The company's mission is to enhance the lives of seniors by enabling them to connect to family, friends, and their community. The Brain Health program combines Internet-based applications, interactive online group discussions, personalized support to deliver a unique blend of cognitive, emotional and social stimulation. The "MyGames" application includes "FitBrains," an online brain exercise program combining games and lifestyle tools to improve a person's quality of life through activity, awareness, and motivation.
