3 Ways to Remain Social as a Senior September 11, 2017

3 Ways to Remain Social as a Senior , Russellville, Arkansas

As people age, maintaining an active social life becomes increasingly challenging. Elderly people can often no longer drive, they may struggle to walk to the communal areas, and lifelong friends and family members begin to pass away. However, healthy interpersonal relationships are key to one’s happiness and well-being. To promote wellness among seniors, the compassionate home care team from Care IV Home Health has a few key tips.

Social Senior Living

Regular Meetings

It’s easier to stick to an activity when you have it penciled into your calendar. Especially since seniors often need to arrange transportation in advance, plans need to be made ahead of time. Scheduling regular visits with friends, family members, or even home health aides can help seniors receive the social interaction they need. Whether it’s a stroll through the park or a game of chess, studies show these interactions help seniors remain healthy and mentally fit.

Hobbies

It’s never too late to learn to crochet, join a book club, or try water aerobics. Fostering new hobbies helps people of all ages develop new relationships, and the elderly are no exception. Encourage seniors to try new things, as well as keep at old passions.

Home Care

Many elderly people have few family members or friends who can visit them regularly. In these cases, home care professionals may provide the love and attention they deserve. In addition to helping with day-to-day tasks, home health aides form genuine friendships with those they serve.
