One common misconception about the normal aging process is that cognitive decline is an inevitable and unavoidable outcome. However, heathy mental aging is determined by many variants, including a person’s lifestyle. In fact, research suggests that older adults who frequently participate in intellectually engaging activities exhibit higher cognitive function than those who do not.
This is why helping you stay mentally active is a focus at Springpoint. We know that learning doesn’t stop once we graduate from school, which is why we offer lifelong learning opportunities at every one of our continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs). It’s vital to seek new information, even as we age, for a variety of health benefits.
Constantly seeking new information, no matter what the subject matter may be, enhances our health greatly. Here are a few benefits to lifelong learning:
At Springpoint, we understand the importance of lifelong learning; that’s why each of our communities offer engaging educational opportunities that expand your mind.
