It’s no secret that staying active is one of the keys to longevity and quality of life. Physical exercise, for instance, is critical in helping maintain a healthy weight, can help increase mobility, flexibility, and balance, and can even help reduce the impact of some types of chronic illness. Regular physical activity can improve blood pressure, immune function, and digestion; with the proper regimen, you can even reduce the likelihood of Alzheimer’s, diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disease as you age. It’s for these reasons, and several others, that life at the Cottages is replete with activities to help seniors keep their minds and bodies healthy.

In taking part in activities, residents learn new skills, discover new passions, and find ways to keep their mind sharp.

And it’s not just the exercise and physical improvements that residents at The Cottages can reap the benefits of — there’s a wealth of social activities to help nourish the mind and the need for human interaction. Social engagement is a great way to stimulate the mind and boost overall health. In taking part in activities, residents can learn new skills, discover new passions, and find ways to keep their mind sharp, even as they age.

Not only do activities help our residents learn new things, they also provide a serious level of motivation. Life is more energizing when we have goals, so picking up new hobbies and having something to work toward is a big factor in building self-confidence, providing meaning, and helping residents maintain a sense of integrity as they age.

 

In addition to those health benefits, however, social activities provide a way to connect with others, something that’s vital, especially when growing older. Keeping that “social network” alive is critical to maintaining balance and fostering joy, and group activities like playing games, reading/discussing books, singing, and the like can all factor into that quality level of interaction.

At The Cottages, activities take on many forms to help maximize the benefits to our residents. Seniors may find themselves engaging in a group game night, a social outing, or even a regular exercise class. It’s all part of making sure the experience is engaging and enriching to their lives.
