Learn how home care for seniors in Painesville, OH can keep your parent’s mind sharp and improve their quality of life
When it comes to memory loss, our genetics have an important role in determining the risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s and other brain-related maladies. However, our lifestyle choices can also greatly affect our cognitive decline and the risk of dementia. With some simple changes your loved one can improve their quality of life and ensure their brain stays strong and healthy. Our trained home care providers can encourage and motivate your loved one to consider these three lifestyle modifications that can significantly improve their overall well-being.
A lot of seniors know physical activity is good for their health and can help them reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. However, regular exercise can also reduce the risk of dementia, and it doesn't require any special equipment. In fact, just by walking around their neighborhood your loved one can improve their brain health.
Engage the mind
Watching TV and other passive activities do not stimulate the brain. On the other hand, many hobbies help keep the brain active, such as bowling, dancing, solving puzzles or gardening. That means that your loved one can improve their memory and reduce the risk of dementia while doing something they love. Our home care providers can encourage your loved one to engage in these activities and keep their brain active and healthy.
Believe it or not, spending time with friends and loved ones can protect one’s brain. Interacting with others will stimulate your loved one’s brain on several levels and boost its development. In addition, seniors who often socialize have a lower risk of loneliness, depression, and other emotional issues.
