Stay Sharp FitMinds Program

Retire at Home York/South Simcoe is so excited as three Stay Sharp programs have launched in the area and are attended well.  The understanding that the brain has plasticity and is enhanced by novel and complex thinking is catching on.  The fear of dementia, or any memory disease, has people paying attention to their daily exercises.  The five areas that are critical to your overall health, brain health in particular, are as follows:  Nutrition, Socialization, Mental Stimulation, Spirituality and Physical Activity.  These five areas can be focused on every day or take one per day.

Education Focus: Loneliness

There are five critical areas of brain health: Socialization is one of these areas. As a person ages often isolation and socialization take a back seat. It is so easy just to kick back and watch some tv or pretend to be social on “social” media.

Education Focus – Scams and people!

We hear in the news where aging adults are the target of unscrupulous people attempting to part the elder from their money.  Personally this writer has watched as a woman’s family and her bank begged her not to send money to a scammer with no success.  She is her own power of attorney and all they could do was advise, beg and plead while the ultimate decision lay in her hands and she was convinced the scammer was for real..Read More

Education Focus – Dehydration

Dementia is a word we are hearing more and more everyday as the aging adult population grows with the pending swell of people who are born between 1944 -1964. In discussion with a colleague yesterday it was pointed out the leading adults of this swell are currently 73 years old. Our aging adult care system has not begun to see the “baby boomers” yet.
