Helping Your Senior Stay Happy
Our bodies go through many changes as we age and, unfortunately, some of them will make it more difficult to do all of the things we once could. These changes can take a toll on seniors health, physical as well as mentally.

What Can I Do To Help My Loved One?
One of the most important ways you can help to improve your loved one’s mental health is through social interaction. Positive socialization with people, both inside and outside a senior’s regular circle, provides them with the opportunity to share stores and make connections that can help improve their memory.
What’s The Science?
Researchers give neurotransmitters the credit for the mental health benefits of socializing. While talking with AARP about this subject, Lou Cozolino, a psychologist and professor of psychology at Pepperdine University, believes that the release of oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin into the brain creates this effect. When a person’s brain releases these three neurotransmitters, stress is reduced and it’s easier to feel a sense of well-being and contentment.
