Over the course of our lives—starting in our 20s—we lose brain cells, a few at a time, causing a normal decline in the brain’s ability to remember. You may have reason for concern if you forget directions to a place you have been to many times or how to do things you have done often. This could signal the beginning of Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia.
Our bodies, including our minds, deteriorate as we age. Having said that, there are many things we can do to decrease and even prevent the deterioration process. Comfort Keepers of Canada® has put together a list of exercises and activities that can help seniors remain mentally sharp as they age.
