How to improve memory!

Now for the good part. Several studies indicate that improving memory by at least 30 percent can happen just by engaging the mind. This is probably not news to you. More likely you are thinking that it takes two to play a game if you can’t use a computer; game shows on TV are okay; learning a new skill might require outside engagement. So what do we do to help our parents? Let’s create ways to increase communication with other people. Choose one long-term activity that the parent can do outside the home regularly and just bite off the transportation cost with ride-sharing or concierge service. (Consider it like the old times of carpooling children.) Try to talk your church or other social groups into creating something totally new for older people that really stretch the brain. Some of these tried by support groups including teaching conversational French centered around fun learning at a French dinner, a trip to see Monet at the art museum or the French influence at the Dallas Arboretum.
