Health Benefits of Senior Living  

The advantages of community

 Folkestone card club
Living in a community that offers opportunities for regular social interaction often helps seniors live happier, healthier lives.
Studies reported by the University of California-Berkeley, the National Institutes of Health and the American Society on Aging indicate that seniors who maintain social connections:
  • Have significantly higher physical mobility
  • Are more likely to have regular health screenings
  • Have lower rates of cognitive decline
  • Are less likely to suffer from isolation and depression
