For many people, a move to senior living is often determined by physical needs – whether it’s a risk of falling, an inability to continue driving, or increased difficulty in performing daily activities.
But what may not be a top priority at first is the social and mental benefits that can be enjoyed when finding the right community.
It’s why at Prestige, as much as we tend to the physical health of our residents, our teams seek to bring engagement and meaning to their lives as well.
Studies show that there are tangible health benefits to older adults staying active and engaged, both physically and mentally, at all ages:
· Regular activity can prevent certain diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, and help with blood pressure, balance and sleep.
· Group activities are a great way to create and build friendships, which is particularly vital for older adults who can often be isolated.
· Regular activity helps older adults maintain or strengthen their cognitive health, as trying new activities forces the brain to adapt.
Throughout May, we’ll be showcasing that fun with a series of open house events at our communities. Find the location nearest you to learn more!
