Senior People Leaving Home Daily Have Higher Chance to Live Longer
A new study, published in the journal of the American Geriatrics Society, suggests that older adults that leaving home every day have more chances to live longer compared to those who stay indoors.
The study included data of 3,375 adults aged between 70 and 90 years all of whom were involved in the 1990–2015 Jerusalem Longitudinal Study.
Having analyzed the received data, the scientists found that senior adults who left their houses regularly were at the lowest risk of death, while those seniors who left their houses seldom were at the highest risk of death.
Dr. Jacobs says: “What is interesting is that the improved survival associated with getting out of the house frequently was also observed among people with low levels of physical activity, and even those with impaired mobility. Resilient individuals remain engaged, irrespective of their physical limitations.”
