Wits Workout Curriculum

Wits Workout is a peer-reviewed, pilot tested, brain health resource tool developed to assist leaders who provide programming to older adults in community settings. Based on the research that intellectual challenge and social connectedness are two of several factors that contribute to brain health throughout life, Wits Workout has two main goals—to provide purposeful opportunities for older adults to engage intellectually, and to increase their socialization through ongoing group participation.
This 264 page facilitator’s guide consists of 24 themed units, each accommodating a 60–90 minute face-to-face program. Length of the session can be modified by the number of activities utilized. Sessions can be offered weekly, biweekly, or monthly, and can stand alone or be presented as a series.
Units include:
• Leader guides
• Printable activity handouts
• Answer sheets
Whether you are an experienced leader or novice, Wits Workout makes it easy to lead discussions and facilitate a shared learning experience.
