Brain Health and Injuries

Brain health is important for seniors. Actively keeping your brain in good shape will help you stay mentally sharp as you age. Research shows there are three areas to consider when you plan to maintain and improve the health of your brain: your mind, your body, and your spirit.

 

What Can You Do

You can easily add brain health activities to your daily routine. Physical activity, healthy eating, meditation, reading, playing games, and trying to memorize phone numbers can all help.
The Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s website has many ideas about how to get started.
