If your granny still seems sharp and alert despite her age, she must be doing something right. Researchers suggest that playing bingo can help in boosting mental speed, absorbing information, and memory, especially in older adults. 

Any kind of physical or mental activity is beneficial, not only for the elderly but also for younger people. Since bingo is a fast-paced game, it can help in maintaining good eye and hand coordination.

The game also encourages socialisation, which is essential for older people to experience healthy and happy lives. Some doctors even believe that being sociable can help in decreasing an older person chances of becoming frail and weak in the long run.

So, next time, join your granny and have a good time playing bingo. In case, you don't know how to play, click this link here: https://www.hityah.com/bingo/how-to-play
