Brain Games

Our residents are never bored because we live the Montessori way, or as we like to call it, the Birches Way. Or if they are, it's because they choose to be. After all, everyone needs a little downtime now and again.

A couple of times a month, on Fridays at 10:30 am, we have a group called Brain Games. Brain games are a fun way to learn new things. We play different games, including sudoku, iPad games (word, trivia, guessing the pictures) that we screen mirror on TV, or worksheets. 

Pictured here are residents Shirley Adams and Darcy Kelleher holding up their A+ worksheets from Brain Games. 

 At The Birches, our way is the Montessori way. We're the only Montessori Inspired Lifestyle credentialed community in Illinois.

 Many residents have found that the Montessori approach vastly improved their lives. They're more active, have more friends, and enjoy participating in thoughtfully curated programs and things to do. This translates into an enriching, full life for our residents in Assisted Living and Memory Care
