Retiring Later May Help Prevent Dementia

 

Retiring Later May Help Prevent Dementia, Study Finds.

A recent study in France showed that there is a decreased risk for dementia for each year you postpone retirement. Nearly half a million adults in France were studied (apparently, France keeps very detailed medical records). Working helps keep us physically active, socially connected and mentally challenged. The saying is true: if you don’t use it, you just might loose it.

It was noted, that some seniors are just as busy during retirement. It is possible to continue to keep your brain active. You can volunteer, take a college class, or learn a new skill.  The point is, in whatever you decide to do, be consistent.  Do not go back to sitting around watching TV and living a sedentary life-style.
