Lifelong learning good for seniors, and might help fend off dementia


Here’s an encouraging story by Harriet Edleson in the New York Times Saturday, January 2, 2016, “In school for the sake of keeping the mind stimulated”  or, online, “Older students learn for the same of learning”.

The article concerns the 150000 students at the Osher Life Long Learning Institutes , under the Bernard Osher Foundation.

My own needs would be to learn to use Sibelius (music composition software) better, and video editing through Final Cut.  I’ll have to look into the Tech Center right here in Crystal City, but maybe Osher offers something.
