SILVERcare of Washington, NC is a locally owned, licensed home care agency that was established in 1993 in Greenville, North Carolina. We provide in-home assistance and personal care services to the elderly, disabled and injured. We like to think of ourselves as mature America’s best friend.
We all know that as we get older, it becomes more and more difficult to remember things. However, you can help slow down the process by doing some simple things to help improve your memory and keep your mind sharp.
Here are some memory-improving tips from helpguide.org:
- Make sure that you are getting enough sleep. Exhaustion can negatively impact your memory and clarity, no matter what your age. So, a good night’s sleep is especially important for seniors.
- Exercise your mind with a hobby. Don’t be afraid to try something new like painting or pottery, or stick with something that you’ve always enjoyed like reading or playing tennis.
- Exercise your body. Not only does exercise increase the oxygen flow to your brain, it also relieves stress and helps you to sleep better– two factors that can impact your memory.
- Spend time with your friends and family. Social interaction is important for all ages, and that doesn’t stop at a certain age. So, be sure to meet up with family and friends on a regular basis for lunch or a movie.
At SILVERcare, we believe in providing companionship and personal care, ensuring the safety of those in our care, while still allowing them to maintain a level of independence. For all of your home care needs in Washington, NC and other areas of Eastern NC, contact us at SILVERcare.
