Cite examples that illustrate how seniors can overcome age-related problems
Late adult cognitive functions include memory and problem solving, language and verbal abilities, creativity, memory and creative thinking. Complex networks of neuro pathways are responsible for language and verbal abilities such as comprehension. These functions are much less susceptible to age-related declines than motor control, which is more specialized. Research suggests that older adults are just as capable of problem solving as younger ones when they’re given tasks that require them to apply learned responses.
While memory is lessening with age but not necessarily a sign that it will be impaired, research has shown that people of older age may still be able overcome their forgetfulness through compensatory strategies like semantic clustering and elaborative encryption. Finally, creativity has been found to increase with age due to its reliance on accumulated knowledge and experience – something which seniors tend to possess in abundance. This cognitive ability is largely sustained by healthy lifestyle choices such as exercising and participating in mentally stimulating activities, like chess.
