Neighborly Home Care Reminds Bala Cynwyd Seniors to Get Outdoors for Health
May 3, 2017 – Ardmore, PA – Spring is here, and that brings opportunities for seniors to get out and about in the sunshine and fresh air! As a provider of elderly home care in Bala Cynwyd, Ardmore and other Main Line communities, Neighborly Home Care advocates outdoor senior activity, because numerous studies have indicated that doing so can be highly effective in improving senior health and slowing the onset of age-related diseases. A recent University of Alabama at Birmingham study covering over 16,000 participants showed that even simple exposure to sunlight significantly helps improve cognitive function in seniors. Additionally, sunlight exposure also helps combat depression and reportedly boosts levels of happiness.
