A study of six-thousand women shows that after the age of 60, women’s memory declines less if they’ve worked throughout their life.
Researchers found the decline was 50 per cent less compared with women who never held a job.
The Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Jessica Caldwell says mental stimulation in a career can provide numerous benefits as you age.
She says women who worked when they were young and then came back to the workforce got the same benefits as those who worked the whole time.
