Senior ScienceDid you know that senior citizens who participate in mind-simulating activities can improve their cognitive abilities, rejuvenate their memory, and even help slow down or reverse the aging process? Recent scientific studies clearly show that seniors who stay mentally active enjoy all of these rewards while having fun at the same time!
High Touch High Tech of Greater Houston offers Senior Adult programs that are designed to provide fun, interactive activities for older adults who are looking to make their retirement days more rewarding. Our workshops provide a fresh approach to activities for Senior Centers, Nursing Homes, Active Senior Communities, and Retirement Villages.
High Touch High Tech workshops offer a hands-on experience and create a social outlet to help seniors bring out their personality and energy. We come to you and through our interactive learning approach; seniors are given the opportunity to interact with their peers, share memories, and be reminded of a more youthful time in their life. The Senior Adult Science programs we offer are perfect for nursing home activities or community centers in a group setting. We use materials that are safe and appropriate for senior citizens of all abilities.
High Touch High Tech programs are centered on both the individual & group experience! Our programs are small enough to provide good socialization with others and individual attention from our scientists. We work with activity directors and their staff to develop specialized programs that are fun, educational, low cost, and tailored to fit their specific needs.
