Coordinated Movements for Aging Adults

by Shari Kalkstein

Description

As we age, the brain atrophies with disuse as do muscles. Alzheimer’s and dementia are just two conditions of the brain that can have debilitating effects; not only for individuals, but for their families as well. Much of the current research states that exercise can help to ward off these diseases.
