Delaying retirement may protect from dementia
Delaying retirement may protect from dementia

A new study from France found that people who delay
retirement have less risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or other types of
dementia, with the risk reduced 3.2 percent for each additional year of work.
Researchers say the conclusion makes sense, since working tends to keep people
active, socially connected and mentally challenged, which are all known to help
prevent mental decline. But Heather Snyder of the Alzheimer’s Association noted
to AP that this doesn’t mean everyone needs to delay retirement. She said,
“It’s more staying cognitively active, staying socially active, continue
to be engaged in whatever it is that’s enjoyable to you.”
