Socialize, Keep Active, Exercise Your Brain

Written by Senior Services’ Staff: Deb Conarty R.N., Seasons Director, Monica Bissett, Seasons Program Manager, Erin Wallace, Seasons Program Manager

Are you or someone you know living with Parkinson’s disease, stroke, diabetes, memory loss or another chronic illness? If so, is there interest in social engagement, brain health, trying new things, working on a hobby of interest, keeping your body in motion or staying involved in the community? Senior Services offers a program that provides all this and more.

 Did you know that socialization has more than one benefit? Social interaction helps ward off depression and stress, both of which can contribute to memory loss, especially if you live alone. Join us to meet new people, socialize and have fun this winter.

Did you know that your brain needs exercise too? Just as physical activity helps keep your body in shape, mentally stimulating activities help keep your brain active and in shape. This kind of “mental exercise” can help keep memory loss at bay. Join us for a variety of interesting and challenging cognitive programs. Something new each day will keep you on your toes!

 Did you know that managing your chronic conditions can lead to better brain health? Follow your doctor’s treatment recommendations for any chronic condition, such as thyroid problems, high blood pressure, diabetes and depression. The better you take care of yourself, the better your memory is likely to be. The on-staff nurse is conveniently available to consult as needed.

Did you know that physical exercise has brain benefits too? Physical activity increases blood flow to your whole body, including your brain, which may help keep your memory sharp.  Enjoy a variety of specially designed exercise programs, that don’t feel like exercise! A body in motion, stays in motion.

Did you know that eating well does more than help your waistline? A heart-healthy diet is as good for your brain as it is for your heart. Support your mental and physical well being with a nutritious meal while enjoying the company of others.

There are so many benefits. Come to the Adult Day programs at Senior Services and enjoy all the benefits offered. Engage in meaningful classes that focus on physical wellness, creativity, brain fitness and socialization. Specialized training allows Seasons staff to lend a hand or care for those who may be experiencing changes in memory and health as they age.
