SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leisure Care, a One Eighty brand and one of the nation’s largest privately-held senior housing management companies, announced today a new relationship with Rosetta Stone through which it will provide its residents access to both Rosetta Stone’s renowned language learning programs, as well as the company’s Fit Brains brain training program. Leisure Care is the first senior housing management company in the nation to make these programs available to their nearly 6,000 residents.
“We always strive to provide the most innovative programs for our residents, and Rosetta Stone is certainly in that category,” said Dan Madsen, CEO of Leisure Care.
Fit Brains provides users a fun and engaging way to exercise their brains and build cognitive stimulation in six major brain areas, including: Focus, Memory, Speed, Logic, Visual and Language. The games are then personalized to each individual to increase the difficulty and complexity over time. With more than 13 million users worldwide, Rosetta Stone’s Fit Brains Trainer app has been ranked the #1 education app in more than 90 countries while simultaneously garnering high user ratings.
“We hear from people of all ages the common phrase ‘use it or lose it’ and we want to give our residents the most cutting-edge programming available,” said Clint Fowler, Director of Resident Services. “Residents like the ability to tailor the Fit Brains program to their personal interests, and for those looking to learn a new language, Rosetta Stone is the leader in this category for a reason. This is a win-win for everyone.”
Leisure Care will also offer Rosetta Stone’s foreign language training in all of their retirement communities. Residents will be encouraged to learn a new language or challenge themselves to go to the next level in their own foreign language learning. Rosetta Stone has long been recognized as the gold standard when it comes to language learning, and will offer courses in more than 24 languages to the residents of the Leisure Care communities. This interactive program is a complete digital solution, teaching people to speak, read, write and think in a new language.
