I’m not quite there yet… but I’ve seen it in my parents. As they’ve gotten older, I’ve seen them wonder if they’re suffering early stages of Dementia.
Both sets of my grandparents struggled with Alzheimer’s, so my parents are constantly aware of their mental health and I plan to be as I get older as well.
Here are fact proven ways to lower your risk of Dementia… and they’re not even hard.
- Joining a social club! Regularly talking to others and keeping up with them and interacting is a great way to stay sharp.
- Walking or bicycling is even better. Add physical exercise to the mental exercise!
- Reading or playing games or playing musical instruments is the best!
Seems the key is staying engaged. You know older people who are, as we say, sharp as a tack…and perhaps some who are not.
