Transcript

  • 1. Combating Memory Loss in Seniors www.helpingpsychology.com
  • 2. Human beings begin losing brain cells and producing lower levels of the chemicals needed for brain function in their late twenties. www.helpingpsychology.com
  • 3. Some aspects of age-related memory loss can therefore be explained by these normal physiological changes. www.helpingpsychology.com http://www.suddenmemoryloss.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/symptoms-sudden-memory-loss.jpg
  • 4. Tumor-prohibiting histone deacetylase inhibitors, may help to improve memory function and lessen memory loss – possibly even memory loss attributed to Alzheimer’s disease. www.helpingpsychology.com http://www.nature.com/nrd/journal/v1/n4/images/nrd772-f2.jogs
  • 5. Omega 3 fats, have been found to positively-impact mental functioning, lessen memory loss and slow mental decline. www.helpingpsychology.com http://www.bcss.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/omega-oil.jog
  • 6. The best Omega 3-sources today are walnuts, flaxseeds, beans, fish, olive oil and winter squash. www.helpingpsychology.com http://www.thebeautybubble.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/omega1.jpg
  • 7. Another way to keep the brain fires burning is to engage in mental exercises. www.helpingpsychology.com http://www.alzprevention.org/images/mental-exercise.gif
  • 8. Even older brains retain the ability to generate new neurons, and mental stimulation may increase this ability. www.helpingpsychology.com http://homeschoolingaddkids.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/stockxpertcom-id20494011-jpg-9633b661401bfeace1ed0f0c6acb01ef.jpg
  • 9. People who continue exposing themselves to new mental challenges well into old-age may reduce the negative mental effects of aging. www.helpingpsychology.com http://blog.mywayvillage.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/bigstockphoto_A_Group_Of_Senior_People_Using_4732288.jpg
  • 10. Mental challenges, combined with physical and social activity, may very well be a cord that helps many older adults stay connected to their full mental capacities. www.helpingpsychology.com http://thelucrativeinvestor.com/images/postimages/seniors.jpg
  • 11. Connection is key to so many bodily and mental functions. www.helpingpsychology.com Similarly, a large portion of human mental activity is directed toward enabling individuals to survive and thrive in their environments.
  • 12. When people stop seeing a connection between their actions and their quality of life, the risk becomes greater that they will experience memory loss and other aspects of mental decline. www.helpingpsychology.com
