Boost Your Brain Power
As sisters living in the small mountain town of Basalt Colorado we have a common love and care for helping people. Marti Barbour has a long-standing reputation in the community for doing Elder Care, being Hospice and Home Care of the Valley Volunteer Coordinator, and director of Roaring Fork Brain Train. When Marti discerned that the program needed more cognitive education, she sought and found a program which taught socially based brain training. It is called Total Brain Health.
In seeking answers for a client with Alzheimer’s disease, Dia and Marti studied the work of Dr. Daniel Amen who works with brain injured patients. Together we decided to collaborate on learning and teaching the programs of memory training, forming a business called Boost Your Brain Power. We have been offering brain health classes through Eagle County Senior Center, Colorado Mountain College, Renew Senior Community and others who want to bring these programs into their facilities.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Dia…I know that your brain is still young and supple because you are constantly engaging it… not to mention your spirit. I have always been awed by your will power and commitment to following your spiritual beliefs and I am so lucky to have you in my life. You are a great friend and mentor.”
Tracy Murtha. Santa Fe New Mexico
“Brain Health is a critical part of optimal living. We believe everyone should have the chance to boost their brain power and achieve their best each day and every year.” –Dr. Cynthia Green
“The Alzheimer’s Association believes there is sufficiently strong evidence… to conclude that regular physical activity and management of cardiovascular risk factors reduce the risk of cognitive decline and may reduce the risk of dementia. The Association also believes there is sufficiently strong evidence to conclude that a healthy diet and lifelong learning/ cognitive training may also reduce the risk of cognitive decline.”

After Memory 1.0…What our customers are saying
“Thanks to Marti Barbour and Dia Lynn’s conscientious dedication and belief in the Total Brain Health Memory Course, a mixed group of “seniors” got a chance to sharpen our cognitive skills in a fun and informative manner. The course was held on Wednesdays at the Eagle County Community Center. It is a very nice facility. The workbook was complete and the information was presented in a very professional manner. I recommend looking into future TBH Course offerings.”

“You have much knowledge and vast experience. You are so utterly honest with how you communicate your observations and evaluations of yourself and surroundings. I keep hearing about how others “value” your offerings and experience. Your skill set is exactly what’s needed… you are a teacher who is grounded and believable. People are lost and disorganized and gripped by uncertainty and fear. Right place, right time.”
