How the caretakers from YouCare help elderly people in improving memory?
With advancing age, it is normal for elderly people to suffer from minor memory issues. But the condition is serious in some elders. Memory loss can be a major issue which can take the form of Alzheimer’s if not taken care of during the early stage.
There is no guarantee when it comes to memory loss, but few activities can certainly help in improving the memory or reducing the deterioration. Many families can’t devote enough time to the elderly people in their family, and it is here that home caregivers come into the picture.
The Professionally trained and empathetic caregivers are experienced and qualified along with being passionate about their work. They not only assist elders in daily routine and medicines but also help with other activities such as remembering pleasant things from the past, going over photo albums or other forms of exercises as the case may be.
Here’s a look at some tips for improving memory:
It is important to remain mentally active because just as physical activity keeps your body in good shape, mental activities stimulate your brain. Playing crosswords and puzzles or playing a musical instrument can help in staying mentally active.
It is important for elderly people to meet people and talk with them as loneliness can lead to stress and depression. Meeting with friends and family is good for their mental health.
Engaging in physical activity
Your physical activity helps in increasing the blood flow to your whole body which includes your brain. This helps in keeping your memory sharp. Moderate physical activity such as a brisk walk for an hour can help. Jogging, meditation and yoga can also help in keeping healthy.
Taking good sleep
Sleeping helps in boosting memory. It is important to get good sleep at night. Most adults
need at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day.
A healthy diet is not only beneficial for a healthy body but also for the mind. Eating lots of fruits, vegetables, and grains can help in boosting memory power. It is suggested to avoid alcohol as it can lead to confusion.
These tips and activities may help elderly people in boosting their memory power.
