More and more older adults are suffering from social isolation and loneliness, which is more commonplace among those living alone or who have lost friends over the years. Without many opportunities for social interaction, the mental health of loved ones will be negatively affected, speeding up cognitive decline. Here at Aston Gardens At Pelican Marsh, we recognized the importance and effectiveness of socialization. Therefore, we make sure that our residents have access to exciting daily living activities through our Celebrations Activities & Events.
About Our Daily Senior Living Activities
If you have to describe our senior living community in one word, boring will never be it. With the help of our full-time Activities Director, we are able to provide a socializing environment that encourages residents to mingle around and participate in various forms of events. From fitness and wellness classes to having outings around town, there’s surely something your loved ones can take part in to keep themselves engaged. Typically, our community starts off the day with yoga or tai chi in the morning and ends with movie nights or bingo in the evening. Our daily living activities also include complimentary gourmet meals served three times a day at our Sensations restaurant.
Benefits of Having Daily Senior Living Activities in Your Retirement Community
Staying socially active comes with a number of benefits for your loved ones. One of them is boosting cognitive function. As social interaction allows the brain to be mentally stimulated, this keeps the brain sharp and focused, decreasing the risk of memory-related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Mental and physical are inextricably linked, so when your loved ones have good emotional health, they will be more physically active as well.
Research has shown that people with higher social engagement are found to have stronger immune systems. This is good news, especially for your loved ones, as a more robust immune system is what gives our bodies the strength to ward off illnesses like the flu and even some forms of cancer.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
If your loved ones are staying alone or do not have many opportunities for socializing, a senior living community is able to provide them with the care they need. Here, your loved ones will wake up to friendly faces each day, and be surrounded by friends and neighbors. They will never get bored as there are tons of activities available. Over time, we can guarantee that your loved ones will see a significant uptick in their physical and emotional health.
