Esports for Elderly
Silver Gamers, Golden Victories: Level Up Your Retirement
Esports is short for electronic sports.
It refers to the competitive playing of video games.
Esports has traditionally been a "younger generation thing". But with a suitable training program, seniors can easily pick up this new interest, make new friends, fight dementia and improve their mental agility.
Why Participate in Esports?
Improve Mental Agility
If you enjoy mahjong, chess or similar games for their critical thinking aspects, esports offers a similar depth of challenge.
Make New Friends
Communities naturally form around shared interest. Esports programs are like any other interest group or activity out there.
The inherent team aspect of esports contributes to the natural bonding experience, as participants collaborate to achieve objectives, fostering a sense of camaraderie.
Connect with your family
Every younger generation knows and/or participates in esports. Know what the buzz is about, develop a common topic and help the younger generation connect better with you.
