Many successful people didn’t achieve their triumphs until later in their lives. For example, artist Anna “Grandma” Moses didn’t start painting until she was 76. Countless studies have shown that seniors who actively engage in activities and hobbies have less occurrences of depression, anxiety, and dementia. One of the most effective ways to keep older people mentally sharp is through educational programs for seniors.three seniors in educational program readings books
