Taking part in an activity that is fun and thought provoking can improve a senior’s quality of life. Many studies support the connection between lifestyle and dementia risk- finding that following a brain-healthy lifestyle and performing regular brain exercises can also increase a brain’s cognitive resources.
In the colder days of winter getting some good mental stimulation can often mean indoor activity- and that means for many crossword puzzles, word searches, or adult coloring. Solid research supports that doing these activities helps in many ways including:
- Prevent Dementia
- Improve Verbal Skills
- Practice Solving Problems
- Identifying Patterns
You can find free printouts online or even books at your local grocery store. If the senior in your life loves a good brain challenge, engage with them in one or more of these activities!
