A Home Care Assistant Can Help Keep the Senior Mind Active

How a home care assistant in the Cumming, GA area can help your aging loved one stay sharp mentally

Most of us understand the science behind staying physically active as we age to help maintain physical health. But did you know that staying mentally active is just as important? Each of us might have learned our individual preference for physical activity or exercises, and it’s just as important to identify the mental activities we enjoy so that we can regularly exercise our minds as well.

A home care assistant from Comfort Keepers can help integrate mental activity and stimulation into your aging loved one’s care plan. It’s been proven that mental dexterity, which increases from mental activity and exercises, can help increase emotional, mental, and social health, and preserve our health for longer. That’s why your home care assistant will help you identify the right kinds of activities, hobbies, or exercises to incorporate into everyday life.

Activities that are mentally stimulating can include:

  • Learning something new. This could be reading a book, watching a documentary, exploring a new place in the community, or developing a new skill or hobby.
  • Research and data gathering. Whether your aging loved one wants to explore family genealogy or military history or baking techniques, the activity of researching, exploring, gathering information, and integrating it into your current knowledge base is important for your brain.
  • Managing a schedule. After retirement, it might feel like keeping track of dates or timelines becomes less important, but the practice of maintaining a schedule can help us retain time management skills and stay grounded in the present. A home care assistant can help your loved one build a daily schedule that’s right for their needs, pace, and lifestyle, and includes items like medication reminders that are integral to overall health.
  • Socializing. Everything from one on one conversations with a home care assistant, to help accessing community events, to opportunities to attend senior centers or day facilities, can help seniors have access to opportunities to socialize. Having a conversation draws on memory, attention, and social skills, and encourages healthy brain activity.

 

If you’re concerned that your aging loved one isn’t getting enough mental stimulation in their day, a home care assistant from Comfort Keepers can help. Contact our office in Cumming, GA today at (770) 203-1480 to learn more about our home care plans.
