September 2014 is HEALTHY AGING month!
As part of healthy aging month we’re having fun on our Facebook Page with different games to help keep you mentally stimulated. We will also provide lots of information to keep you informed on how to stay strong and healthy, both mentally & physically! So check our Facebook posts regularly to see what’s happening during Healthy Aging Month & Active Aging Week.
You’ll see some fun games that can be played by just about anyone to stimulate the brain. Some are more difficult than others but, depending upon your age and current mindset we highly recommend using these ideas and playing some of the games we post as a way to stimulate your brain. It is a proven fact that stimulating your brain regularly can help with dementia; both the onset and the slowing of it. It’s always important to keep the mind AND the body in shape!
Check below for the answers to some of our “games” and puzzles we’ve put up to stimulate your mind!!!
GO Physical Therapy & Wellness utilizes some of the most effective techniques and ideas to help you age actively. The best part is that we come to you. This alone is one of the biggest reasons to call GO PT; we’re able to come to you at the times you or your loved one feels best and are ready to “get active” and stronger both mentally and physically.
Please enjoy this page as it changes regularly; adding each new puzzle, game and mind stimulating fun to keep your brain. We will update this particular blog regularly and encourage you to leave comments about what ideas you enjoyed most. We’ve got an entire month to enjoy that every day we’re aging, but ACTIVELY!
Dedicated To Your Health & Well-being (and safety),
