Social Participation and Successful Aging – BionicOldGuy


“Social Participation Paves the Way for Successful Aging”, a review article in Neuroscience News, discusses a study that followed 7000 older Canadians over a three-year period. Those with more social participation (volunteer work or recreational activities) were more likely to remain in good health over the three years. This fits in with the concept of social support, which I had previously listed as one of the “four pillars” of healthy aging.

I liked this quote from the article: “‘Social prescribing’, a practice where medical professionals prescribe social activities, is gaining traction as a non-pharmacological intervention to support health in older adults.” That sounds like a great idea to me!

I am a tech enthusiast, cinema lover, and news follower. and i loved to be stay updated with the latest tech trends and developments. With a passion for cyber security, I continuously seeks new knowledge and enjoys learning new things.
