We here at ElderGadget would like to thank the EldercareABCBlog for its weekly ElderCareABC Carnival. This column highlights relevant and interesting websites and blogs that are tackling issues near and dear to the elderly. I urge all ElderGadget readers to visit the Carnival and listen or read this week’s best elderly-centric pieces. I especially appreciated a post they pointed out by Daniel Goleman, entitled Yes, You Can: New Research Suggests We can Build Our Willpower. This piece first appeared on SharpBrains.com, which, according to its website, is an authority on brain fitness and cognitive health.
We agree that brain games and mind fitness exercises can slow down or prevent the loss of brain function and memory – along with all the hardships that come with them. It’s clear that Mr. Goleman is also working very hard to get this message across, so we’d love to give three cheers to him and to the EldercareABCBlog.
