For many of us, the fall season means the start-up of some of our favorite activities: new museum exhibits, theater productions, music concerts or other cultural events that engage and delight us. And now, a new report from the National Endowment for The Arts gives us all the more reason to partake in these cultural activities. According to this report, seniors who attend such events as opera performances or museum exhibits have slower rates of cognitive and physical decline, and better health outcomes, than those who don’t partake. In fact, even just appreciating the arts has a correlation with better health for seniors. It’s an intriguing finding- one that underscores the need to create access to the arts for all seniors, regardless of economic, physical or social barriers. So take out those opera glasses, and read more about this new report Here.
