The Senior Brain and Poetry

The Senior Brain and Poetry | As people get older, their cognitive functions start diminishing. It’s been like that since the time of immemorial, but recent scientific studies have shown that this process can be slowed down. We’re not talking about taking medications; we’re talking about enjoying poetry. Yes, you’ve read it correctly – poetry has the power to make the senior brain work better.

Benefits of Poetry on the Senior Brain

Benefits of poetry writing:

  • Creativity boost – Writing poetry is guaranteed to take the senior’s mind into a creative mode, which can later help them solve all kinds of problems that are not related to poetry. A creative mind can solve all kinds of everyday problems.
  • Therapeutic effect – In order to create poetry, the seniors need to be focused on their work. And this means that they will have to forget about everything else, including everyday problems that might be making them lose their nerves.

Benefits of poetry reading:

  • Memory – Reading poetry may bring back some long-forgotten memories from the senior’s past.
  • Calming effect – Because poetry makes you focus on the words, it can help the seniors forget about the stressful situations that come together with aging.

The Role of Comfort Keepers

Poetry is best enjoyed when in someone’s company. If you let your senior write/read poetry on their own, they can get in a bad mood. To prevent that from happening, you ought to provide them company. And if you don’t have enough time on your hands for that, you need to hire someone who does.
