Mental Activity for the Old Aged

I had two electronic conversations with acquaintances, in which I explained them how to get in touch with parents and grand-parents and what effects it can have on OUR lives. Just now, I was reading a memoir of Abulkhair Kashfi, written by his son S. Abu Ahmed Akif, in which he mentioned something which is related to my discussions, but he tells of the affect that They (parents and grandparents - old aged people) have over this activity.

Mr. Akif writes about Dr. Abulkhair Kashfi:

Seekers of his comments, recommendations and other manner of professional assistance always got through to him, and perhaps fortunately so because nowadays we are told by doctors that such mental activity not only enables old people to continue being and considering themselves useful members of society, but also prevents the dreaded mind-diseases like Alzheimers and senile dementia.
So now I can say that by this activity of talking to the elderly, we are saving them from danger. :)
Talking and discussing is actually a mental activity for the old aged.
