While much research has been done to determine the cognitive benefits of musical activity by children, this is the first study to examine whether those benefits can extend across a lifetime.

“Musical activity throughout life may serve as a challenging cognitive exercise, making your brain fitter and more capable of accommodating the challenges of aging,” says lead researcher and clinical neuropsychologist Brenda Hanna-Pladdy of Emory University. “Since studying an instrument requires years of practice and learning, it may create alternate connections in the brain that could compensate for cognitive declines as we get older.”

The study enrolled 70 individuals age 60-83 who were divided into three groups. The participants either had no musical training, one to nine years of musical study or at least 10 years of musical training. All of the participants had similar levels of education and fitness, and didn’t show any evidence of Alzheimer’s disease.

Cognitive performance was measured by testing brain functions that typically decline as the body ages, and more dramatically deteriorate in neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

The high-level musicians who had studied the longest performed the best on the cognitive tests, followed by the low-level musicians and non-musicians, revealing a trend relating to years of musical practice.

The high-level musicians had statistically significant higher scores than the non-musicians on cognitive tests relating to visuospatial memory, naming objects, and cognitive flexibility, or the brain’s ability to adapt to new information.

“Based on previous research and our study results, we believe that both the years of musical participation and the age of acquisition are critical,” Hanna-Pladdy says. “There are crucial periods in brain plasticity that enhance learning, which may make it easier to learn a musical instrument before a certain age and thus may have a larger impact on brain development.”

The preliminary study was correlational, meaning that the higher cognitive performance of the musicians couldn’t be conclusively linked to their years of musical study. Hanna-Pladdy, who has conducted additional studies on the subject, says more research is needed to explore that possible link.

The study was conducted with at the University of Kansas Medical Center. At the time of the study, Hanna-Pladdy was an assistant professor in psychiatry at the University of Kansas Medical Center and a research faculty member of the Landon Center on Aging University of Kansas Medical Center. Study co-author and cognitive psychologist Alicia MacKay, also a former research assistant at the University of Kansas Medical Center, is now an assistant professor of psychology at Tulsa Community College.

There are several benefits seniors can reap by becoming involved online:

Mental benefits.  Knowledge of the Internet will help senior citizens improve their mental alertness. Aside from the vast information found on the Internet, it is also a great source for video games. Why video games? According to the Psychology and Aging magazine, playing video games helps improve the cognitive functions of seniors which normally decline during old age. Strategy video games help in keeping their brains razors sharp, and improve their hand-eye coordination. The gaming industry is now looking into the possibility of developing more video games tailored for seniors.

Business opportunities.  By using the internet, seniors will still have the opportunity to earn after retirement. Some online business opportunities include: selling products, selling stock photography images and other service offerings. A great freelance home based job is to be an online content writer.  The reach of the internet enables seniors to share their expertise, knowledge and wisdom acquired through the years.

Shopping convenience.  The ability to make purchases online is one of the best things that happened for seniors. It means that they can shop in the comfort of their home without worrying about mobility and transportation.

World exploration. Not all seniors have the chance to travel due to financial and health limitations. Now the Internet gives seniors the opportunity to explore the world just by browsing and watching videos online.

Continued education. Seniors have the opportunity to browse the Internet to get more information about anything they could possibly want. The categories that have been found to provide the most helpful information for seniors are health and fitness. Online tutorial videos are great ways for seniors to find/see information related to their interests. Popular tutorial videos include painting, playing the piano, gardening, preparing flower arrangements and cooking.

Emotional benefits.  The Internet provides the means for online communication with family and friends which could drastically enhance the mood of an otherwise isolated senior. Studies have found when seniors are able to interact with others online they experience enhanced self-esteem, a more cheerful outlook, increased independence, and an overall happier disposition.

Enhanced family relationships.  Many senior grandparents may feel they are being left behind because they cannot keep up with what is going on in the lives of their grandchildren. With Internet access and knowledge, seniors are able to catch up with their grandchildren through emails, social networking sites, and video chat solutions, thus bridging the gap between them.

The Internet can help seniors learn, grow, and live much happier lives.  AS R.S. Yalow once said, “The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you are learning, you’re not old.”

A deadly heat wave is melting most of the country but as it turns out, many senior citizens,

most vulnerable to the heat, may be ignoring the warnings.  A study out of Kent State University shows 90 percent of respondents over the age of 65 were aware of heat warnings, but most seniors thought the messages were targeted toward “older Americans,” a group to which they did not think they belonged.*  That’s why Senior Helpers, one of the largest in-home providers for seniors in the nation, has started a program called “Heat Helpers,” caregivers who come to the home to keep the elderly safe in this sweltering summer.

“Nobody wants to admit they can’t deal with extreme heat like they used to.  That’s why it’s so

important to have someone check on your elderly loved one when you can’t be there,” says Peter Ross, CEO and founder of Senior Helpers, one of  our nation’s leading national in home senior care providers with a Heat Helpers” in your town.  “Heat safety has changed… from new FDA guidelines on sunscreen to health recommendations for water intake, seniors need to stay hydrated.  It often takes an extra set of eyes and ears to make sure seniors are doing everything they can to stay protected.”

How  Senior Helpers’ “Heat Helpers” Works :

Senior Helpers caregivers come to the senior’s home to help them with daily activities like cleaning, cooking and yard work, which may be too strenuous in these brutal temps.  Caregivers also make sure seniors are taking proper precautions to beat the heat.

  • · .  .  .  .  Stay well hydrated – Caregivers remind seniors to drink water throughout the course of the day, even if they’re not particularly thirsty.  As adults continue to age, the amount of water retained by the body decreases substantially.
  • · .  .  .  .  Maintaining a cool environment – Caregivers close blinds and curtains keeping the house cool, even in triple digit temperatures.  Caregivers also have battery operated/handheld fans readily available to keep their seniors comfortable. Most seniors are budget-conscious, so it’s important for caregivers to be sure the AC is set to a proper, cool level and it’s working. Caregivers can also be responsible to check filters once a month.
  • · .  .  .  .  Stay In air conditioning in the afternoon – The hottest part of the day is from 3-5 p.m. Caregivers provide inside activities like playing cards, going to movies or the mall to keep seniors active inside to avoid spending time outside during the most dangerous hours of the day.
  • · .  .  .  .  Eat plenty, but eat light – Caregivers prepare light food because heavy foods, like meat and cheese, tend to make the body work harder to digest, using more water and generating more body heat.
  • · .  .  .  .  Follow new sunscreen guidelines – Caregivers are well versed on the FDA’s newly released guidelines about sun protection.  Seniors are more prone to sunburn because their bodies have less water.  Caregivers educate seniors about these new regulations such as there’s no such thing as “sweat proof” or “water proof” sunscreen or that you must re-apply sunscreen every two hours for it to work effectively (new guidelines listed at the bottom of the release).
  • · .  .  .  .  Copies of health care information – In the event of an emergency, caregivers can have copies of senior’s prescriptions, health insurance card, and phone numbers of health care providers on-hand.

“We want to do everything we can to make sure our seniors don’t make heat headlines,” says Ross. “Even if your elderly loved ones say they’re staying safe in the heat, it’s always a good idea to have  someone check up on them.”

What We’ve Learned From the FDA’s New Sunscreen Guidelines:

  • · .  .  .  .  There is no such thing as “sweat-proof” and “waterproof” sunscreens.  These words are no longer allowed on sunscreen labels.
  • · .  .  .  .  Sunscreens can claim to be “water resistant” but the company has to put a label on their product stating the sunscreen only offers 40 or 80 minutes of protection while swimming or sweating.
  • · .  .  .  .  You must re-apply sunscreen every two hours for continued sun protection.
  • · .  .  .  .  Use sunscreens with UVA and UVB protection, also known as “broad spectrum” protection.
  • · .  .  .  .  Only broad spectrum sunscreens with 15 SPF or higher provide any type of sun protection (15 – 30 SPF is recommended).

Senior safety products extend from hand rails and smoke alarms to senior cell phone options. A cell phone for seniors can very well help them during emergency situations. Say for example the Just5 mobile phone. This is a very promising cell phone for seniors since it is equipped with PERS features.

This emergency feature of the Just5 cell phone works to dial pre-programmed numbers on the list once the user pushes the SOS button. This means that the phone will dial up to five numbers again and again until someone picks up for help. Besides this, the emergency button also powers up a loud alarm. The alarm can very well help in attracting attention of nearby people to increase the senior’s chances of getting help as soon as possible.

What makes this cell phone even more perfect for seniors is its senior-friendly feature. This is a big button cell phone that can help seniors who have problems with their vision, not to mention its bright LCD screen display. Plus, it has amplified sound to address the needs of those with hearing problems.

Moreover, Just5 is a very basic and simple mobile phone. It is not packed with complicated features that only confuse seniors, especially since they are not as tech savvy as the younger population of today.

Affordable Safety Promise for Seniors

The Just5 cell phone is a very cheap investment. Unlike its other senior cell phone counterparts, this can be purchased for less than a hundred dollars. Plus, the cell phone’s emergency response system comes free of charge. No matter how much you press the emergency button in a single month, you will not be billed for it.

It is a given that seniors need safety equipment to ensure their security and safety all the time. However, make sure you pick a product that is practical, convenient, and reliable for the seniors’ utmost safety.

Here are some scams to which senior citizens are most susceptible and for which they should be on the lookout.

• . . . . . Medicare Rip-off

• . . . . . Telemarketing Scams

• . . . . . Medical Care Fraud

• . . . . . Medical Insurance Scams

• . . . . . Door-To-Door Scams

• . . . . . Nonprofit Misrepresentation

• . . . . . Prizes & Drawing Rip-offs

• . . . . . Bogus Drug Frauds

• . . . . . Funeral service & Graveyard Cons

• . . . . . Invert Home Loan Frauds

• . . . . . Court Responsibility Con (verified from the Federal Bureau of Investigation)

Logic behind why elderly people are targets:

• . . . . . Seniors are extremely prone to helping others.

• . . . . . Senior citizens will be more considerate as well as trustworthy and the traits are usually taken advantage of by con artists.

• . . . . . Many senior citizens live on their own and are therefore more prone to manipulation.

• . . . . . Elderly scam situations are rarely brought to light so they are not educated as to what to look out for.

Suggestions to stop scams:

• . . . . . Advise your aging loved ones not to give financial information such as the number of bank card and credit cards they have, banking account amounts, and Social Security amounts to unfamiliar people without checking first with a family member.

• . . . . . Do not invite unfamiliar individuals into the home without another person      present. If unsure about a company, check with a service such as the local Better Business Bureau.

• . . . . . Before making big purchases or investments, speak with friends or call a trusted lawyer, accountant or bank representative and acquire their advice.

• . . . . . Do NOT make big purchases or investments over the phone.

• . . . . . Research and become knowledgeable about the most common scams and frauds – always lean on the side of being overly cautious with unfamiliar people and confusing situations.

The National Therapeutic Recreation Society established National Therapeutic Recreation Week in 1984. This special week has been celebrated during the second week of July annually since then. This year, National Therapeutic Recreation Week is July 10-16th.

What is Therapeutic Recreation?

Recreational therapy is defined by the American Therapeutic Recreation Association (ATRA) as a treatment service designed to restore, remediate and rehabilitate a person’s level of functioning and independence in life activities, to promote health and wellness as well as reduce or eliminate the activity limitations and restrictions to participation in life situations caused by an illness or disabling condition.

How are Recreational Therapy services different from other therapies?

Recreational therapy embraces a definition of “health” which includes not only the absence of “illness”, but extends to enhancement of physical, cognitive, emotional, social and leisure development so individuals may participate fully and independently in chosen life pursuits. The unique feature of recreational therapy that makes it different from other therapies is the use of recreational modalities in the designed intervention strategies.

Why is Recreational Therapy important?

Research supports the concept that people with active, satisfying lifestyles will be happier and healthier. Recreational therapy provides services which are based on the individuals’ interests and lifestyle, which allows them to better engage in therapy and apply these functional improvements to all areas of their life. Ultimately, it allows them to generalize their therapeutic outcomes to their life after the healthcare team is no longer involved resulting in greater health maintenance over time. Recreational therapy aims to improve an individual’s functioning and keep them as active, healthy and independent as possible in their chosen life pursuits.

At Senior Helpers, we believe activities are the heartbeat of living. The importance of activity in daily living is just one reason why Senior Helpers caregivers can assist your aging loved one in a variety of recreational activities that stimulate minds, promote physical fitness, increase social interaction, teach new skills and, overall, improve the quality of life for all of our clients. Our team of caregivers at Senior Helpers believes in creating an environment that is fulfilling, holistic and nurturing to enhance our clients’ quality of life.

About the American Therapeutic Recreation Association

ATRA is the national membership organization representing the interests and needs of recreational therapists. The association is directed by an elected board of directors with over 42 volunteer teams and committees, focused on areas such as public policy, coverage and reimbursement, diagnostic specialty groups, education and research. An executive director leads the association national office in Alexandria, Virginia. The association provides a vast array of membership services focusing on professional practice, professional development, external affairs, advocacy, treatment networking, and educational services. Specifically, ATRA leads the profession with nationally recognized professional standards of practice, code of ethics, and competency guidelines.

(Stamford, Connecticut-July 2011) – Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Each year, nearly a million people in this country will learn they have skin cancer…and the risk continues to rise as you get older. Senior Helpers of Lower and Upper Coastal Fairfield County, Milford and Orange, Connecticut (CT), one of the leading in-home care providers of senior care in the southwest Connecticut area, is raising awareness about new FDA guidelines regarding sunscreens, which apply to people of all ages, not just young children and adults.

“Unprotected skin can be damaged by the sun’s UV rays in as little as 15 minutes, according to the American Cancer Society,” says Tim Daniels with Senior Helpers of Lower and Upper Coastal Fairfield County, Milford and Orange, Connecticut (CT). “Most skin cancers appear after the age of 45 and it’s never too late to protect yourself from the sun. We encourage seniors to get some fresh air and exercise to stay active, but their skin is more sensitive than others. Even if they’re going outside for a short 15 minute walk, caregivers are there to help them apply their sunscreen as needed.”

What We’ve Learned From the FDA’s New Sunscreen Guidelines:

Sun protection is an important public health issue for people of all ages. The FDA just released their new guidelines when it comes to proper product labeling and UVA protection:

• . . . There is no such thing as “sweat proof” and “waterproof” sunscreens. These words are no longer allowed on sunscreen labels.

• . . . Sunscreens can claim to be “water resistant,” but the company has to put a label on their product stating the sunscreen only offers 40 or 80 minutes of protection while swimming or sweating.

• . . . You must reapply sunscreen every two hours for continued sun protection.

• . . . Use sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection, also known as “broad spectrum” protection.

• . . . Only broad spectrum sunscreens with 15 SPF or higher provide any type of sun protection (15 – 30 SPF is recommended).

“The sun doesn’t discriminate against age,” say Daniels of Senior Helpers of Lower and Upper Coastal Fairfield County, Milford and Orange, Connecticut (CT). “When seniors are exposed to too much sun, they risk being severely dehydrated. Our caregivers can make sure the seniors are eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, drinking water or taking a cold bath to help prevent and/or recover from dehydration. They can also provide ways for seniors to socialize without having to be out in the sun, such as taking their daily walk inside malls or museums or making sure they’re in the shade and properly protecting themselves while spending time outside.”

Give Your Senior the Gift of Sun Protection:

• . . . Special UV radiation-absorbing clothes — the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 30 or higher.

• . . . Wrap-around sunglasses that offer UV protection.

• . . . A hat with at least a three-inch brim all the way around — sun hats provide protection for not only your head, face and ears, but also your neck, shoulders and upper back.

• . . . Look for products that have earned the Skin Cancer Seal of Recommendation.
