Poetry is much more than just a hobby. Not only is it good for a person’s soul, but some recent studies have shown it’s good for the brain as well. As cognitive performances decrease over time, the seniors are encouraged to get involved in poetry in order to keep their brain sharp.
There are many ways in which poetry helps the senior brain. Regardless of whether the senior writes poetry or they just enjoy reading it, these activities can help them a lot.
Here are some benefits they can expect to see soon after starting their poetry adventure:
The Role of Comfort Keepers
Comfort Keepers is an adult home care agency with offices in Lubbock, Texas, whose caregivers are trained to provide all kinds of different services, including companion care. What this means is that if your senior loved one lives alone, the adult home care providers can come by their home to give them company. And the time they spend with the senior can be used for such things as poetry reading and writing.
