Senior Benefits for Getting Outside

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
May 26, 2022

What did your mom always say when you were a kid? “Go outside and get some fresh air!”

Posted by Magnolia Manor on
March 29, 2021

We all know there is no shortage of apps to communicate with others and play games. Where would we have been these past many months during the pandemic without these essential digital tools? But apps can help seniors in so many other ways.

As we age, most of us worry about losing our memory or cognitive abilities. In addition, Senior Living notes that:

  • Many seniors have vision issues, and a third of those over 65 especially have trouble reading small print
  • About half of prescriptions are not taken as directed
  • Some seniors don’t fill prescriptions in the first place due to high cost

Sound familiar? No worries. There are apps that can help solve all these problems and more. Apps can help seniors monitor and maintain good health, simplify daily life, and learn new things. And a lot of them are easy to use and even free. Here is a smattering of apps you might consider for yourself or for an older friend or loved one.
