Offers Low-Risk Exercise
Most seniors shy away from physical activities out of fear of harming themselves. However, golf is a low energy sport your loved one can play as often as he or she likes. It is a low-impact activity where players walk on a soft and gentle rolling surface. Your loved one will appreciate this activity because he or she can stay active and have fun with a low risk of injury.
Stimulates The Brain
When playing golf, your loved one gets to walk around the course. Regular walking strengthens the brain’s memory circuits, which could reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The physical activity from playing golf can keep your loved one’s heart healthy and boost his or her brain function.
Enhances Quality Of Sleep
As your loved one ages, he or she may experience difficulty going to sleep at night or sleeping for a full eight hours. Getting a good night’s rest is important because this is the time the brain flushes out toxins in the body. The physical activity your loved one gets from golfing can enhance his or her sleeping pattern.
