No matter one’s age, staying engaged socially with their community, friends and family will always be an important aspect of living a healthy, happy life. Seniors at Heritage Point, a Mishawaka nursing home, have a variety of ways they will be staying socially active and engaged with fellow residents and community members this summer. Activities like group exercise, hobbies with friends such as knitting or painting, and even enjoying meals in the common dining room with other residents are just a few great opportunities for seniors to connect with people their age whenever they desire.
These endless opportunities for each resident to stay engaged in their community are essential to creating a happy and healthy life in a retirement community and are part of what makes Heritage Point unique. Here, our life-enrichment and care professionals make an ongoing effort to be inclusive to each senior’s interests, as well as conscientious of limiting health conditions like dementia, when considering how to make sure each senior can remain socially engaged. Given that socialization is helpful with combatting feelings of loneliness and isolation, and is paramount in supporting a healthy brain, Heritage Point makes sure that each resident has the opportunity to socialize within their community and build genuine connections.
Here are the top eight ways that seniors stay socially active at Heritage Point. These activities are by no means ranked in popularity, and are available to all residents!
All of these opportunities for staying social this summer are perfect for seniors living in Heritage Point and are part of what makes their experiences in the community so rewarding and beneficial to their health.
