About Mental Health
As you age, it's important to exercise your brain just as you would your body to keep it in great shape.
  Seniors and Memory
If your forgetfulness is increasing, it’s helpful to know if you have a serious problem and what you can do about it.
  Seniors and Depression
Sometimes depression occurs for no apparent reason, but often it's triggered by the death of a loved one, deteriorating vision, or the inability to live independently.
  Staying Mentally Fit
Your social network plays a critical role as you get older. Being socially active can have the same positive impact on health as regular exercise.
