Grandparents Who Babysit Are Less Likely to Develop Dementia And Alzheimer’s

All grandparents enjoy spending time with their grandchildren, but as it turns out, this activity is not only a lot of fun but it could actually have tremendous health benefits for grandparents.
According to a recent study published in the journal of the North American Menopause Society, grandparents who spend time with their grandchildren at least once a week are less likely to develop Alzheimer.
The results were based on cognitive tests. Those who had babysat their grandchildren once a week scored higher compared to those who hadn’t. However, the same test concluded that too much time spent with children can actually have a negative impact on the elderly.
So when it comes to the time grandparents spend with children, moderation is key. One of the biggest problems seniors experience in this stage of their lives is the lack of social interaction which is an essential element of a healthy lifestyle.
So it’s only natural that spending time and interacting with children yield significant benefits. If you want to know more about this topic, all you have to do is watch the video. And if you have a senior in your life, take a few seconds to share this with them as well.
