Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? More and more seniors are taking advantage of the time they have during their golden years to take free classes and earn degrees in subjects that they love or have interest in. This active lifestyle even after retirement can pay dividends in maintaining your mental health, acuity, and even financial stability. Did you know that taking a class in just about any subject can improve your cognitive abilities, rejuvenate your memory, and allow you to have fun all at the same time? Recent scientific studies clearly show that senior citizens who stay mentally active enjoy these rewards.

Challenging our brains to grow new cells can take place at any age. For that matter, we can build new connections which help our problem-solving abilities as well as memory. The more its used the better the brain grows and does.

What we have been providing at Primrose Retirement Community for our residents is an Elder University Class that is once a month. It provides free classes on subjects that range from learning about historical events, surrounding history and famous people of Mansfield, hobbies, financial and estate planning, computer classes, services available to the elderly, and warning the elderly about scams and how to protect themselves in this day and age.

Many of our residents take part in these classes and always walk away with something they learned new that day.
