Why Staying Socially Active Is Important To Aging Adults
Studies show that seniors who stay socially active and engaged experience a variety of benefits, including, better cognitive function. For many seniors, it’s easier to watch TV alone than to go out with friends or enroll in an exercise program. Older adults need to be proactive about their activity levels, or their health will deteriorate. Social activities keep us sharp and mentally engaged, and this is important to prevent the onset of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. While many senior homes and rehab centers have their own activities available, for seniors that live independently, a great solution is to find your nearest senior center and check out their activities calendar.
