Living in old age
Staying mobile, exercising and socialising with others. There are many aspects to living in old age. One of these is healthy exercise. This keeps people active well into old age, can ease complaints and also supports the mutual experiencing of successes. In addition to rehabilitation, prevention is also in focus.
A healthy lifestyle protects against heart attack, diabetes, blood pressure and depression. Decisive factors for a healthy lifestyle are eating correctly and partaking in physical and mental exercise. No memory – no active participation in life. In order to be able to consciously experience and interact with our environment and control our own destiny a functioning memory is very important. However, you cannot have one without the other.
Without exercise there can be no optimal supply to the brain and without brain no deliberate and targeted movement. Scientific findings indicate clearly that continuous physical mobility reduces the requirement for care and works to prevent dementia. One important aspect for maintaining health in old age is also the maintaining of social contacts, civic involvement – go through life together, not alone!
