Physical and Mental Activity for Aging Well

by Deah on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 10:30 AM

Our population is rapidly aging - and with this trend comes increased longevity. While longevity is a good thing, it is going to bring more age-related illnesses. When I look at my parents and see the many ailments, I ask myself what I can do to help prevent this from being me in another few years. I feel that some of their weakness could be prevented.

I can see where it is possible that caregivers can face a higher risk of mental health problems.

Compassion Touch Therapy Helping Elderly

by Deah on Thursday, July 14, 2016 8:44 PM

I have been reading and hearing a lot about "Compassion Touch Therapy" that is being used at an elderly facility near our home town. The person who does this therapy at the facility has a lot of praise for the concept. She is trained specifically for assisting the elderly and says the compassionate part of the therapy comes naturally.

Friends Can Make Us Smarter!

It may come as no surprise that the number, type, and quality of social interactions are related to how well we function mentally as we age. From memory to ability to solve problems, our relationships may have a real influence on how we age cognitively.
What may surprise some people is how this works.
