No matter how old we are, we are much happier when we participate in activities and events that bring us joy and fulfillment. While seniors may find it more difficult to engage in some activities, it is important to find a way for your loved one to be physically, mentally, and socially active through senior-friendly activities in the area.
Seniors who have something to look forward to and who are a part of their community or nurture their hobbies show less brain aging, better memory, and improved mood.
