Community Activities that Promote Relationships
Our residents have the opportunity to be active members of our community on a daily basis. Our aim is to provide a variety of engaging and interactive community programs to ensure our residents stay as active as they prefer each day.
Benefits of Activities for Seniors
It goes without saying that staying physically active in your later years offers dozens of health benefits, such as faster injury recovery, preventing illness and disease, and aiding in chronic pain management. But staying socially active is just as important. It’s essential to stay busy and stay active for a number of reasons. The benefits of activities for seniors include:
More Restful Sleep
Loneliness, depression, and a bad mood can be reasons why people have trouble sleeping. By being active in the day, not only is mood improved for a more restful sleep, but a busy day can make one tired and ready to sleep through the night.
More Likely to Be Physically Active
If individuals are attending social activities, they are more likely to also enjoy physical activities. Plus, the simple act of going on a walk or getting out of their rooms to attend an event means they’re getting some physical activity each day.
Social activities help combat feelings of loneliness and depression. By conversing with friends and family, people find themselves feeling happier about life in general.
Improved Cognitive Ability
Our brains need exercise too. Social activities can help boost brain function and even prevent the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Increased immune systems have been seen in those who stay more socially and physically active than those who don’t.
Having and maintaining a tight-knit group of friends can help one live a longer, happier life. They not only help reduce stress but often encourage each other to remain active and act as an emotional support system.
