About

The BRiTE (Brain Training and Exercise) Wellness Center is an innovative center which promotes brain and physical health and wellness by providing integrated activities in a stimulating social environment. The program was developed by a team of like-minded scientists at the University of Pittsburgh whose goal was to create a setting that would support individuals with mild changes in cognition or those wishing simply to proactively maintain their brain health.

Although the program is not considered clinical therapy, the activities and programs utilized emphasize those components of everyday life that are associated with better brain health among individuals with normal cognition. 

Our model consists of Movement, Creativity, Music, and Cognitive Training.

BRiTE is a community-based learning center for independent adults, not to be confused with an adult daycare program or rehabilitation program.  We are not a clinical program and we do not provide nursing or caregiving services.
