Boost the Senior’s Brain Power | Our brains can play tricks on us, making us forget names of people or misplace our keys. The good news is that the memory lapses are usually just temporary problems. At least when it comes to younger people. But, when it comes to the seniors, memory issues can be a sign of serious cognitive decline.
As people get older, their cognitive performances diminish. It’s a natural part of the aging process. But, it’s not a pleasant one. Neither for the senior nor for their family members. If you have a senior loved one whose cognitive functions are starting to worsen, there are some things you can do to slow down the process.
As you can see, most of these brain-boosting methods require you to be actively involved. You need to be there with your senior to provide them assistance with exercising, as well as challenge them in conversation and other activities meant to stimulate their brain. But, what are you supposed to do if your everyday obligations prevent you from doing it?
