Abstract


The brain is a part of the human body that functions as a cognitive center. When the brain begins to age there will be a decline in brain function which can lead to a decline in cognitive function and balance of the body, so that an elderly person will experience memory loss. After the elderly retire or stop working, the physical activity routine will decrease. This will have an impact on the level of concentration and cognitive status in the elderly. Groups with low education are not perceived to be better cognitively compared to groups with higher education. The study was conducted in the Gombong II Community Health Center Work Area of Kebumen District in May-June 2017 by distributing questionnaires on physical activity assessment, education and cognitive level measurement using the MMSE questionnaire. Sampling was conducted in cross sectional with 35 respondents.
