Holistic & Engaged Aging
Healthy aging is a holistic concept incorporating mind, body and spirit. Current evidence indicates that an enriching environment and social activity support physical and psychological well-being. For example, mental stimulation (such as puzzles, colorful creative activities, and music) improve brain health in older adults, including individuals showing signs of cognitive decline. DiscoveryPaks provide families and care givers a fun opportunity for interaction as well as an easy way to bring joy and stimulation to those living with dementia.
