Holistic aging is a philosophy that looks at all aspects of a person as they age, including their mind, body, and soul.
As people age, they can be fearful of frailty and decline. However, keeping an older adult’s mind, body, and social life active can prevent or even reverse frailty. A key to holistic aging is selecting simple activities that older adults find enjoyable. Caregivers are in a unique position to help them figure out what activities will work best.
