Visiting Angels - In The NewsCouple unaware of bear on porch

Did you see the video of the older couple who walked out their front door, completely missing the bear standing just feet from them? A security camera shows what happened. Thankfully, the couple is unharmed and all is well.

We might think, how could anyone miss such a seemingly obvious visitor? One explanation may be age-related. In general, as we age our reaction time decreases. This can affect our senses including sight, sound, smell, and touch. Decrease in peripheral vision might be a factor as our field of vision narrows as we age. Certain medications or health conditions may also slow reaction time.

Senior humor from Visiting Angels NJ

July 1st is International Joke Day, so we at Visiting Angels NJ wanted to participate. After all, laughter has many social, physical and mental health benefits. Laughter helps ease tension, brings people together, helps diffuse anger, increases blood flow, lowers stress hormones, boosts immunity, and overall improves moods.

How to increase your laughter: Watch comedies on TV or at the movies, share jokes with your friends, play with your children, grandchildren, or pets, engage in fun activities such as board games, table tennis, or bingo, and be around people who are fun.
