May 26th is National Senior Health and Fitness Day. The goal of National Senior Health and Fitness Day is to bring awareness to and promote healthy lifestyles for aging adults. This year's theme is "Get Going...Get Fit...Start Today!" Here at LifeBio, we would like to encourage you to take this opportunity to do just that!

An area of health and fitness that is often ignored is cognitive health. LifeBio works to promote cognitive health through reminiscence, also known as the life review process. Studies have shown that the reminiscence and life review process can have the following benefits for aging adults:

  • Increased life satisfaction
  • Improved resident/staff and family relations
  • Reduced geriatric depression
  • Decreased disorientation and improved social interaction
  • Increased orientation and competence after relocation
  • Increased sense of purpose and meaning

LifeBio’s extensive line of reminiscence products and services help you capture your life story and the life stories of loved ones by following an autobiography template, as well as through the Memory Journal, Life Story Journal and many other legacy sharing tools.
