Communicating regularly with a partner a friend or relative in an active manner such as playing board games requiring the thought processes such as Draughts (checkers) Chess, UNO, Scrabble and crosswords are but a few of the activities available for persons old and young with time on their hands, even reading the news papers help you stay on track with what is really or supposedly happening around you and the rest of the world.
Older people have their memories and love to converse with the younger set, some of it may be a trifle muddled then again what historical events aren't a a bit askew. History unfolds the main mistakes made by our forbears and that considered taboo in this mod world, although our politicians worldwide continue to make the same mistakes of the past.
It is pitiful to see elderly persons staring out in space while sitting in the old rocking chair or the like, unable to recognize the beautiful flowers in the garden which they planted a couple of years back. Most cases like this could have been so different if earlier they had chosen the options to stimulate their brain cells by becoming more active and useful in their surroundings earlier in their lives.
In our own personal lives my 76 year and betrothed 57 years and I; having recently celebrated my Fourth 21st birthday, share all the chores of the household. Every thing except fixing difficult computer problems, that is left to our eldest son Chris (Mr clever dick)Although most of the gardening is my world in which a bountiful supply of flowers and veggies (Thrive) watch out for the advert to appear soon, wouldn't surprise me.
Doing Crossword puzzles and other mentally stimulating pursuits may hide rather than prevent the progress of OLD TIMERS aka Alzheimer's disease. Evidence suggests that keeping the brain active, by reading, listening to the radio or doing puzzles can delay the onset of dementia.
But the reality could be that, even without symptoms, our brains are suffering progressive damage behind the scenes, the big problem is when the symptom of old timers do appear the disease may be further advanced than expected.
