Socialising benefits the brain
Many scientists believe that social interaction is key to maintaining good mental health and warding off diseases like demential and Alzheimer’s.
Studies have found that older adults who stay connected socially are more likely to retain their memories and cognitive abilities later in life. The message from the recently published study in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior is that we need a variety of brain stimulation, including social activity, to keep our minds sharp. This is especially true later in life, when ageing takes its toll on memory and other complex neurological processes.
Whether through volunteering, joining a club, seeing friends more often, finding a new interest, joining a group, or chatting on the phone – the possibilities are endless to take advantage of the brain and memory-boosting benefits of socialising, and The Private Care Company can help!
