Memory Loss is very common during old age. About 10-20% of the population over 70 have some type of cognitive impairment. Memory loss can’t necessarily be prevented but it is important to keep your brain active and healthy to help lower your risk of memory loss.
Some activities that increase mental stimulation and can help to boost your memory are: *Learning something new. I do not believe in the phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” We all have the ability to learn a new skill, or research a new and interesting topic. *Music. In my own experience, music has proven to be almost magical in terms of brain functioning. My grandmother who had advanced-staged Alzheimer’s could still remember the tune and words to “You are my Sunshine” even after she had lost the ability to form complete sentences. It opens up a whole new part of your brain that is not always in use and can be a great way to exercise your brain! *Exercise. This increases blood flow to your brain and helps keep your body working the way it should be. *Socialization. It is never good to be isolated, being in a social environment can drastically improve your mood and quality of life.
