This more than proven the benefit of the activities in senior age, either physical, cultural or artistic type all bring benefits to physical, mental and personal health because it keeps them active offsetting losses, it is for this reason from Joyners we mention some of these activities.

To encourage physical activity can do different exercises sports or dances begin with the already typical ballroom which not only helps mobility but also social relations, also activities for the elderly is also recommended in pools special programs tailored for them, or we can choose to ride, it is also advisable to practice physiotherapy exercises to strengthen the muscles constantly thus preventing possible injury.
Another type of activity is recommended music therapy is to put songs proposed by the elder What is sought with this? the answer is simple, with this exercise memory works because it helps to remember intimate moments since then be asked to write down what you think when you hear the melody or song to share, on the other hand body language helps the expression of the feelings themselves, so the elderly should be encouraged and dance with him, this will help break the ice.
Another recommended activity is the pun as memory and mental agility work, the game is quite simple it consists in saying words that begin with a letter or vowel such as (words beginning with the letter the & ldquo; Z & rdquo; shoe, carrot, etc).
If the dynamic works well fluently, you can increase the degree of difficulty a bit and passes syllables such as (word beginning with the syllable "pro" product, provocation, etc). If the old man is beyond words you can successfully go even higher degree of difficulty by adding new guidelines, such as a word is said and a new word begins with the last letter of the above ie if the initial word is & ldquo; House & rdquo; the next word should begin with the letter & ldquo; a & rdquo; that is & ldquo; & rdquo closet; and once those words can not be repeated and behold the difficulty, this game of words may sound simple, but it involves much memory and helping and keeping it nimble.
