Tai Chi is a Chinese form of martial arts that involves slow, controlled and low-impact movements that can be easy for even those with limited movement. Tai Chi can help seniors feel steadier on their feet, improve their hand-eye coordination, and is endorsed for seniors seeking to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and get gentle aerobic exercise. #WellnessWednesday

Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. In their efforts to understand neurodegenerative diseases, researchers have broadened their investigations to include glia, the “other brain cells” that support and regulate neurons. They’re looking beyond the brain, too, at body processes such as glucose metabolism, which appears to link Alzheimer’s and diabetes. How exactly are these diseases related to ageing? Identifying “protective” genes or lifestyle factors may provide insights into prevention and cure.
