Family of Five… Senses!

March 12, 2015

Age-related changes can impact the sensory systems of seniors. We all rely heavily on our senses to interpret the world around … reading the newspapers, listening to music, smelling the roses, tasting cherry pie and patting our pets. Did you know that primary senses can be trained and strengthened with special activities? Sensory activities are a key component for people of all ages, but in the elderly, it helps maintain cognitive abilities and aids folks in engaging with their environment. These activities use familiar sights, sounds, textures, smells and tastes to help seniors recall memories and stimulate reason. It is also a way to tackle a sensory impairment, such as low vision or loss of hearing, with a bit of “exercise.” Best of all, taking part in an activity of personal importance will help you feel engaged with a vital part of your family … your UV family! “The love of family is life’s greatest blessing.” – Unknown
