THE POSITIVE HEALTH EFFECTS CAUSED BY ENRICHING ACTIVITIES

Did you know that studies show boredom can negatively affect a person’s physical, emotional, and mental health? Frail seniors or those who live alone may lack daily activities and stimulation, putting them at an increased risk for depression, weight gain, and other mental and physical ailments. Keeping elderly loved ones engaged physically and mentally can have the following positive effects: Physical activity can:

  • Help prevent certain diseases and disabilities

  • Improve mood

  • Increase strength and stamina

  • Improve heart and lung health

  • Improve balance, which in turn helps prevent falls

Engagement with art therapy activities can:

  • Help the person cope with stress

  • Trigger pleasant memories

  • Improve fine motor skills

  • Regain lost muscle function and coordination
