Comfort Keepers home care professionals help seniors see the positive effects of poetry for their mental wellbeing
Recently, studies have shown the positive benefits of reading and writing poetry for seniors that are suffering from brain diseases. Also, poetry have showed that it slows down symptoms that are common with brain diseases. All of these positive effects are all tied along with when seniors are reading or writing poetry. Doing one or the other will help make a positive effect on seniors physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
Benefits of Poetry:
- Creativity: When writing poetry, most poets tend to write about their past. Writing about their past will help seniors remember past events that they want to write about, instead of forgetting about them
- Therapeutic: Writing poetry is a challenging task, but writing only a few words will help the senior become stress free as they will be focusing on past events, instead of current day struggles
- Memory: While reading poetry, the reader usually tries to compare the story being told and past event that has happened to them, which will help their long term memory
- Calming Effect: While reading poetry may bring back old memories, it also relaxes the reader. When they read and think about past events, it usually brings back good memories, calming the reader
