Healthy Ageing

Many older people, either through illness, disability or isolation may experience a decline in health and well being. Therefore, as we age, it is so important that we keep the brain and body active.

Benefits of regular activity, such as gentle exercise, show an increase in muscle strength and mobility, as well as a better appetite and sleep pattern. As a result of games, quizzes and reminiscence, concentration and memory improve. An increase in social interaction promotes conversation, alertness, humour and emotional well being.
