Retirement can be a difficult time in life. You may find that you’re not as active or have health concerns, which means living on your own becomes harder. Daily tasks like cooking meals and doing laundry can become unwelcomed. Manor Lake Assisted Living and Memory Care (Ellijay) offers senior care and helps make the transition into older age less daunting.
As we age, it’s increasingly important to stay social and active. Unfortunately, nearly 25 percent of people over 65 experience loneliness and social isolation. This problem can lead to physical and mental issues like:
- Chronic illness
- Hearing loss
- Depression and anxiety
- A 50 percent increased risk of dementia
- An increased chance of heart disease and stroke
Even seniors receiving home care services or companion care may not receive as much socialization as they need. Twenty-four percent of seniors said they would have liked to participate in more social, recreational, or group activities. These findings emphasize the importance of frequent social participation in maintaining the quality of life.
We understand that staying active in retirement isn’t always easy.
Older adults can enjoy their golden years to the fullest by staying connected.
