Virtual Brain health Center + ABI Wellness
= Your Virtual Brain Health Team
We have partnered together to offer the Brain Enhancement and Recovery System (BEARS) with our growing virtual community.
BEARS is a research-based program that helps people address their individual cognitive challenges and enhance their brain health.
Change Your Brain
BEARS is an ideal solution for a wide range of cognitive challenges. It addresses long-term symptoms such as fatigue, memory difficulties, depression, anxiety, irritability, impulsiveness, trouble concentrating, impaired self-control and emotional regulation, and difficulty with planning, learning, and communicating.
The Four Pillars of BEARS
Combining research and therapies to create a higher standard of care, the BEARS Program is a four-pillar approach to cognitive care:
Neuroplasticity, the science BEARS is based on, is the brain’s ability to change and adapt. Through specific actions, the brain is able to generate new neurons and make new connections. This means that people are able to learn, or re-learn, new skills and strengthen cognitive capabilities. BEARS takes advantage of the brain’s neuroplastic capacity to help participants target their cognitive challenges, change their brains, and improve their brain health.
While traditional cognitive programs typically use compensatory strategies to help clients cope with their limited capacities after injury or illness, BEARS focuses instead on cognitive capacity building through neuroplastic programming. This approach helps people regain abilities they’ve lost from injury or illness, enhance cognition, and improve their overall quality of life long-term rather than live within the limits of their reduced capacities.
