For Healthcare Professionals

Services For Businesses

Originally developed in mainland Europe, our brain training programmes are now being made available in the UK to forward thinking care providers, via an ongoing series of regular training exercises, or ‘Brain Gyms’

What is it, and how does it work?

The BRINA service is delivered typically weekly or bi-weekly by ‘trained’ care staff to individuals, in carefully structured therapeutic group or individual sessions, where participants are actively encouraged to join in:

• to help prevent or delay the initial onset of dementia among those in the highest risk groups

• to help arrest its escalation among people in the early to middle stages of dementia, which in turn helps them lead more fulfilling and angst-reduced lives for longer

BRINA brain training programmes are designed to enhance cognitive functions and help people in carrying out daily life activities, and in so doing, to improve mood, life satisfaction and general sense of wellbeing.

• We will provide your staff with specialist BRINA training, so that they will be able to deliver the brain training sessions to anyone who joins the programme.

• Our brain workout session packs will be designed for each participant individually and delivered to you by email on a weekly basis, one week before the next session is scheduled to take place.

• Regular cognitive performance assessments are made for each participating individual, so that measured evaluations can be made over a period of time. BRINA will also provide support and supervision during the assessments as well as setting up and running the programmes.

Why you should consider offering
BRINA to your clients

Thousands of people have benefitted from attending Dr Kounti’s sessions, resulting in them maintaining their cognitive skills for longer and live more fulfilling lives. For the first time, the service is available in the UK, with huge benefits to care providers.

10 Reasons why you should act now:

1.We can help you generate a long-term growing income stream depending on your estimated number of participants.

2.Evidence has shown that active participation can help people maintain their cognitive and functional skills, and thus remain independent for longer.

3.The relaxed and interactive nature of the training sessions creates increased staff job satisfaction, an improved outlook among participants and an enchanced all round atmosphere.

4.The families and friends of those individuals attending brain gyms will begin to see a difference in demeanour and behaviour of their loved ones.

5.Measurement yardsticks will be put in place for each participating individual at the outset, which means that changes can be observed over time.

6.Historically, we have seen a 20% annual increase in participation demand for Dr Kounti’s training in care facilities, meaning long-term increased revenue generating opportunities.

7.It will provide you with a competitive advantage over other care providers.

8.A huge opportunity for you to generate positive PR in the local community.

9.Offering the BRINA service to your residents will be extremely well received by CQC, and provide opportunities for you to raise the bar and turn ‘Good’ ratings into ‘Outstanding’ ones.

10.But most importantly BRINA can help you create an ‘evergreen funnel’ of qualified prospects for your business/organization by setting up a Brain Gym for your local community on your premises.
