SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SarahCare(R) announced today that it is pleased to offer the Posit Science(R) Brain Fitness Program Classic(TM) to seniors in its adult day care centers across the country. SarahCare decided to offer the Posit Science program because of extensive scientific validation of the program and high satisfaction reports from program participants. The program consists of six exercises done on a computer, and is the only program with published studies proving it works. Published studies show that the program improves memory on average by ten years and results in faster thinking.

SarahCare provides an upscale country-club like setting for seniors at a reasonable cost and provides services like hair salons, day spas and putting greens. "Our clients and their families are concerned with taking care of the body and the brain," said Merle Griff, CEO of SarahCare. "For that reason, the Posit Science Brain Fitness Program is key to keeping our clients happy and to attracting new customers."

SarahCare is already offering the program at its Campbell, California site. The company announced plans to expand brain fitness into its Michigan, Georgia, Ohio, and New Jersey sites, and eventually, to all 60 of its centers nationwide. The company offers the Brain Fitness Program to its general population as well as to clients with early dementia.

"Posit Science is already helping tens of thousands of seniors in retirement communities and adult education classes. We are pleased to expand our Brain Fitness Program Classic into adult day services through a company that provides such quality care and service," said Kim Kopp, acting Director of Sales, Posit Science Corporation.
