Bookworms Get their Brain’s Juiced
- on July 8, 2013
This is a no-brainer. Reading improves concentration and exercises our brains. For some seniors, it may even strengthen brain connections. That’s why for people who have experienced mild memory challenges, reading may sharpen their minds. You’ve heard the adage, “You can’t teach old dogs new tricks.” Well, reading books helps people learn things outside of their own experience and can enable people to feel like they’ve learned a new trick.
Bridge Haven Memory Care encourages reading. For people wanting to learn more about memory conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia Bridge Haven recommends these newly published books shelved at the Lawrence Public Library:
- A Look Inside Alzheimer’s: I Know Who I Am Today, But What About Tomorrow? by Allen, Dublin and Kimmerly.
- Understanding Alzheimer’s by Naheed Ali, MD
- Dr. Ruth's Guide for the Alzheimer’s Caregiver by Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer
