A recent study from Australia shows that investing a normal amount of time caring for grandkids may reduce risk of Alzheimer’s Disease by expanding cerebrum capacity. "He’s our first grandson, and we are just thrilled to pieces about having him in our lives," said Mary Humm.

She and spouse Patrick are grandparents of Alex. "We have a few other grandparent families in the area, and we're prepared to join that gathering," said Patrick. Their introduction as guardians to Alex might not have been simple.

"I found that I had to reach back into the recesses of my memories of what it was like to calm and soothe a baby," said Mary.

Be that as it may, look into recommends minding mental aptitude and decreases the chances of developing depression.

"One of the best things you can do as you get older is to maintain those interactions with other human beings," said Dr. Diana Kerwin, head of geriatrics at Texas Health Dallas and organizer of Texas Alzheimer's.

"If you think about when you do take care of a child, you tend to become more of a teacher – you’re teaching them new experiences, maybe taking them to the zoo or working on vocabulary with them. It's stimulating for the babysitter’s brain as well,” said Dr. Kerwin.

The physical activity involved with caring for children is good. Kerwin noticed that would probably be participating in exercises like heading off to the recreation center, pushing youngsters on a swing or going for a walk.

"It's really good exercise taking care of a baby," said Mary. "You’re swinging them; you’re rocking them."

Texas Health has named it as "Grandparents 101" for this new era of grandmothers and grandpas. They learn refreshed health rules, newborn child CPR, and how to childproof their home.

For the Hummus, the class got them out of their rut and ready for whatever little Alex throws their way.

"You don’t have time to think about anything else," said Mary. "It's a wonderful exercise in love, it is."
