This blog post is dedicated to everyone who is worried about dementia. There is something you can do about it.
I was so surprised to learn recently that more older adults are becoming inventors. In a article last week in the New York Times, John Calvert, executive director of the United Inventors Association, explained that older people have more time on their hands and can better focus on a projects.
It was so nice to read something positive about our age group. Dr. Gary Small, professor of psychiatry and director of the UCLA Longevity Center, said, “Everyone thinks that aging is a negative process. But that’s not necessarily the case. An aging brain can see patterns better.” That’s important news for those who like to invent and are over 50 years old.
