Media Advisory - Seniors can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's or dementia with an active mind



    TORONTO, Oct. 11 /CNW/ - Bruce and Lisa Mahony of Home Instead Senior
Care in Toronto, a non-medical home care and companionship service provider
for seniors, will host an event on Tuesday, October 16 on how seniors can
reduce the risk of Alzheimer's or dementia by keeping an active mind. Today
many seniors are saying good-bye to traditional games like Bingo(R) and opting
for video-game technology and group activities like Scrabble(R) and Bridge
tournaments. The latest studies say it all helps.
    The event at The Briton House Retirement Residence will feature
mind-stimulating games projected onto a large screen. Seniors will participate
in a Nintendo Wii(R) bowling tournament and take part in a video Jeopardy
game.
    "Studies have found that senior mind game activities are what keep many
aging minds young and vital," says Bruce Mahony, owner of Home Instead Senior
Care in the Beach and mid-town Toronto. "Our caregivers, as well as our owners
and staff across Canada, know first-hand the value of keeping the minds of
seniors active."
