How Activities Boost Memory at Heritage Point Assisted Living and Memory Care
There is no doubt that as we age our memory is not as sharp as it once was. This is due to natural processes along with the different limitations imposed by neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, and Lewy body. That’s the bad news, the good news is senior apartments for rent Mishawka such as Heritage Point have fantastic memory care allowing residents to hold onto their memories and cognitive function for a little longer.
Age and Cognition
A common theme with Mishawka retirement homes is the residents don’t have the mental sharpness to handle the day to day tasks as easily as they used to. This could be true on a functional, physical level while the mind may be sharp as ever. The opposite could be true as well. Often, both the mind and the body are not as quick as they once were. The goal of senior living in Mishawka is to lessen the burden on retirees. Instead of having them fend for themselves, these assisted living communities understand that as we grow older, our cognition isn’t what it was.
There is no way we can accurately point to a time when cognition declines. Some psychiatrists claim the brain is operating at peak efficiency from age 30-35. If that’s the case, by the time people arrive at senior care in Mishawka, their faculties should be quite eroded. We know, however, that’s not the case. Retirees are very sharp and often their minds work faster than their bodies allow. Still, retirees are not as sharp as they were as this is the natural aging process.
Depending on the careers people had and family considerations, there can be a drop off in cognition as the years advance. Besides common sense, there is lots of proof in psychiatric studies that the older we get, our cognitive abilities atrophy. Fortunately, Heritage Point is Mishawka assisted living that specializes in helping blunt the effects of age upon cognition.
Creativity and Mental Fitness
Just like the body needs exercise, so does the mind. In Mishawka senior care, this is no different. Heritage Point is proud to offer several programs designed to stimulate the minds of retirees. One of the best ways to stimulate minds is through creative projects. The reason arts and crafts are beloved by people of all ages is they allow the mind to wander and work in its own way. For retirees, this is a great way to keep memories fresh while keeping themselves challenged. Heritage Point’s arts and crafts keep retiree creativity keen, and there are some fantastic programs such as creating dog biscuit making turning that creativity into service.
The Mishawka senior community at Heritage Point also has musical programs. Few things have been proven to do as much to keep mental fitness in tip top shape the way music does. Thanks to various studies, the importance of music is found to be just as profound in the elderly as it is in young children. Furthermore, music’s tonal quality also activates memories. Think about songs – most music is associated with a time, place, and in many cases, other people. Using music is a great way to keep memories alive and active.
