Music: Always Good Medicine

Nearly everyone loves music. Senior citizens usually want to hearken back to the music that was popular when they were young, and it is a fact that music is good for the soul.

This article tells the ways music can delay the onset of dementia, and you’re never too old to learn to play a musical instrument.

Young people can encourage seniors when they share their musical ability, and music has been shown to help those suffering from some of the effects of Parkinson’s disease. And lest we forget Lawrence Welk and Myron Floron, seniors also benefit from learning to play the accordion.

So, sing, dance, and play because music will keep both your body and your soul young.
