If your elderly loved one used to write more often when he or she was younger, encourage him or her to get into the habit again. People over 65 have much to gain from making writing a part of their daily routine.
Below are a few major advantages:
Enhance Memory, Comprehension and Communication Skills: According to report from Stanford University, writing has critical connections to speaking, which means focusing on better writing skills can also lead to better speaking skills
Reduce Stress: Writing allows your loved one to vent feelings of sadness, anger, and other painful emotions, which makes it possible to feel calmer and more present in the moment.
Boost Self-Confidence: Writing about positive experiences allows your loved one to relive those moments, which triggers the release of dopamine and endorphins that boost mood and self-esteem
Create Self- Discipline: Discipline is like a muscle that becomes stronger with more practice, and the discipline required to make writing a regular habit can spread to other areas of your loved one’s life
