Friendships Through Comfort Keepers® a Home Health Providers
How can my loved one improve his or her well-being?
It can be increasingly difficult for seniors to stay positive when the process of aging interferes with their ability to accomplish daily tasks. Not being able to things they used to can be incredibly draining on seniors, both physically and mentally. While physical health often take precedence, the two are inherently linked and equivalent in importance and a home health providers can help with both.
A surefire way for seniors to improve their sense of well-being is to interact with others. In fact, memory and overall mood can be improved by talking to people outside of the family. Making friends is a great happiness booster and a topic we explore in our video series, “Friends. Forever. Always.”
Having conversations with new people often keeps seniors sharp and attentive, while providing emotional stability. Seniors have all their memories stored in their minds and it can be therapeutic to share them with others. Sharing positive personal experiences with new people not only helps with recollection, but also stimulates the mind by reliving these memories.
Why do social interactions produce positive mental effects?
The reason for these positive mental effects during interactions is due to chemical in the brain, according to researchers. Lou Cozolino, a professor of psychology at Pepperdine University, stated that oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin produce these effects when talking with the AARP. The release of the chemicals into the brain actually cause a sense of satisfaction.
