Care in Midstream supports active ageing – under the watchful and loving direction of our Occupational Therapists, we facilitate a range of individual and group activities for our residents.
Studies show that seniors who stay socially active and engaged experience a variety of benefits, including: –
Better cognitive function
Social activities keep us sharp and mentally engaged.
Maintaining good emotional health
Connecting with others helps keep you in a positive mood, which in turn wards off depression.
Improved physical health
Socially active seniors tend to be more physically active, too. Plus, you tend to eat more and make better food choices when you eat with others.
Boosted immune system
Studies show that seniors who stay engaged with others, and life around them, have higher levels of immune-system functioning.
Enjoying restful sleep
If you have difficulty sleeping at night, it could be that you’re feeling isolated and lonely. Research shows that people who have more fulfilling relationships in their lives tend to sleep better than those who don’t.
Live a happier life by keeping your social circle strong. Friends and loved ones help you deal with life’s daily stresses, and are often key to encouraging you to live a healthier lifestyle, too.
