(PRWEB) June 28, 2012

The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released its June Senior Spirit newsletter which provides readers with information on critical topics facing seniors, their families and those who work with them. Each month’s issue of the Senior Spirit newsletter will cover the latest in health, financial and social topics along with updates on current senior related news. The June issue will discuss how music can be a key to a senior’s health, different ways to increase social security benefits for seniors and how brain stimulation can improve senior driving.

June’s health topic discusses how seniors with Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure, heart conditions, and many more ailments are seeing the benefits that music and music therapy can have on such conditions. “Scientists have proven repeatedly that the human body responds positively to music. While people of all ages can directly benefit from music as part of daily living, seniors and their caregivers are seeing immediate and impactful positive results.”

This month’s financial section will inform readers about current issues and concerns regarding social security, provide an explanation on how to maximize the benefits retirees are entitled to and help readers navigate through all of the complications of social security benefits. “Politicians will continue to determine how to manage the situation created by the discrepancy between the number of people in the workforce versus the number of retirees. However, individuals do have some decision-making power as to how Social Security will best support them during retirement and how to get the most out of the program.”

The social interest topic discusses how brain stimulation can help improve elderly driving. As people age, they tend to change their driving habits as physical capabilities are compromised. The senior may avoid highways and drive when the roads are less busy. Even so, statistics show that seniors are still at an increased risk for being involved in a multi-vehicle accident, most often at intersections.” This article will provide tips and resources seniors can use to reduce the risks associated with senior driving.
