Brain Resources for Seniors

Brain Resources for Seniors (BRFS) is a section of the Dana Foundation’s website that focuses on seniors and issues that affect them, such as memory, medical ailments, and hearing loss. I edit this section on a quarterly basis, and always find it interesting to browse through the resources.

BRFS is divided into two sections: health and general resources. Although BRFS is obviously geared toward seniors, many of the topics relate to people under 65 years old as well. Under the health section, you can get more information on conditions such as mental illness or depression. These are ailments that affect various ages, so the information can be useful to many people. Websites listed, such as the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD), has information that applies to older and younger people dealing with depression.

I also try to include relevant articles at the end of certain sections. In the memory section, for example, you can find a link to the article “Improving Memory to Improve Academic Performance,” which discusses the latest advances with Parkinson’s.

The general resources section is geared toward topics many seniors might find helpful as they age, such as AARP, which focuses on concerns for people 50 and older, and Senior Drivers.

You don’t have to be a senior to appreciate BRFS! There are sections for non-seniors such as caregivers, exercise, and nutrition.
