Brain training boosted older adults' mental skills

As the owner of SYNERGY Home Care of Rochester I see the affects of cognitive decline regularly when I meet with my clients.  As you would expect there is much research going on trying to find ways to limit or reduce the rate of cognitive decline; dementia and Alzheimer’s.  Here are two new findings.

Researchers found that giving a group of older adults a brief course of mental or cognitive training helped to improve their reasoning ability and processing speed, and hold onto the gains for up to 10 years, compared with a group of untrained controls. Plus, those who received additional training for another 3 years improved even further. 

Researchers have showed that seniors that sleep longer have faster cognitive decline.   People in their 60s and 70s who slept on average more than 9 hours a night showed double the amount of cognitive function decline, compared with people who slept 6-8 hours a night.
