What’s good for the Aging Brain?

The good news is that more people are living longer; the challenging news is that more people will possibly become victims of age-related mental decline. In a study published in March in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, it turns out that regular exercise: walking, cycling, swimming, dancing and even gardening, may substantially reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.

 

The ideal type of exercise to prevent memory loss is unknown but according to Dr. Raji, senior radiology resident at UCLA, ‘physical exercise’ is a very good idea. Dr. Raji lead a study evaluating almost 6,000 older men and women over a period of 10 years. The story showed that active individuals had substantially more gray matter, generally equated with greater brain health, compared with their inactive peers.

 

Spring is a great time to start especially if you like to walk and garden. If you’d like to meet new friends while you exercise, Senior Services offers a number of exercise classes on a weekly basis, such as: Swinging with Susan, Arthritis Exercise, Chair Yoga, Time Steppers, Tai Chi, Ballroom Dance and County Line Dance. To view the schedule online, just click on ‘Coover Senior Center’ in the Personal Enrichment Services section on the left hand side.  Sign up is easy; just call 382-0515 and get started today!
