For seniors, socialising can be just the thing to prevent or treat an array of health problems, physically and mentally.
While regular contact with family is essential for seniors, it is understandable that they can’t be the only source of social interaction. This is why remaining active in a community of like-minded seniors can be one of the best ways to keep a social and full of life.
Our Seasons communities have vibrant social calendars where seniors can forge friendships, share old memories and engage in an array of social activities.
Maintaining friends and an active social life is important to the health of a senior and can add years to their lives, helping to protect against illness by boosting the immune system. Friendships can also lower your blood pressure and drastically reduce the potential for serious illness.
Social interaction helps keep the brain active, potentially reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease and depression. If someone doesn’t enjoy regular contact with others, they run the risk of feeling socially isolated. This can lead to them becoming less physically active, higher blood pressure, feeling lonely and having a greater risk of death.
By keeping our residents active and involved in activities and encouraging couples to stay together, Seasons works to keep a positive, healthy and happy environment.
Residing in a community of other seniors encourages residents to forge strong connections and friendships. Having their friends around encourages them to feel helpful and needed and this can make all the difference in their quality of life.
Around the world, elderly folk have been creating networks of friendships, enjoying regular catchups where the benefits are felt by all. Living in an environment such as Seasons encourages seniors to get involved and facilitates a powerful sense of community. It is through this sense of community that our residents stay healthy, active and most of all, happy.
