New Guide Highlights Senior Activities That Are Enjoyable and Exercise the Brain

ATLANTA, Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Arbor Company, the South's premier operator of outstanding senior living

communities, today announced it is publishing a guide offering ideas and examples of enjoyable activities that will exercise seniors' brains. The e-book, The Visual Guide for Keeping the Older Mind Sharp, is available for free download at

Cognitive skills decline in humans as they grow older; this is a normal part of aging. Like any part of the body, the brain—especially the senior brain—needs, and benefits from, exercise. The effects of working out one's mind can actually strengthen it. Alternately, inactivity can weaken the brain or at least allow the decline of cognitive skills to take a firmer hold. The opportunities for seniors to sharpen their minds have never been more numerous, more social, more engaging, and more enjoyable. The Arbor Company's new guide explores many of the options available for older adults who want to keep their brains as young as possible. Features of the e-book include:

  • A brief examination of the relationship between aging, memory, and cognitive function
  • Six strategies—from solving puzzles (with examples) to playing games to maintaining physical health—that keep the senior brain sharp
  • A look at how community living can positively affect senior health

"The brain is a use-it-or-lose it organ," says Chris Harper, The Arbor Company's Director of Communications. "The more you challenge it, the stronger it generally becomes. Keeping a sharp mind in retirement not only prevents boredom and disengagement, but also reduces their chances for developing dementia and lessens the effects of cognitive impairments. Our guide offers seniors plenty of suggestions to keep their minds sharp, learn new skills, be social, and have fun."
