Seniors living in a retirement community have a lifestyle that is simply wonderful. Today retirement communities focus on giving retired individuals just what they want, whether that’s an active senior lifestyle or a laid back and relaxed routine. Most regions have these types of senior living communities, and individuals as young as 50 years old are finding these are great places to live.
Active seniors are proof that you can enjoy better health and have fun doing it. Research studies have shown that leisure time and physical activity promote a healthier lifestyle. Our bodies are meant to be active and move. Many, as they age, tend to become increasingly inactive, preferring to watch TV to help pass the time away. Finding fun activities for senior citizens can change that.
Active seniors are involved and participate in what life has to offer. Hobbies give an individual a reason to get out and share with others. Whеthеr it is painting, building model airplanes or playing cards the benifits of a hobby can be an increase your chances for improved physical, social and emotional well being. Having regular leisure-time physical activity is important. Anything that promotes moving and being active will benefit you as you age. The health benefits of staying active are a delay or prevention of a chronic disease such as heart disease, disbetes, some cancers, and arthritis. Physical activity also promotes brain fitness. This can help delay or prevent dementia or Alzheimer’s.
How you react and respond to different situations in life affects your health. Stress and anxiety can lead to poor health. Active seniors are involved and lead a more balanced life. Hobbies allow active seniors to socialize, find companionship and camaraderie. Making connections with others that have the same interests can often open an individual to new found friendships.
As we age, we experience losses that affect our emotional health. Active seniors that are involved in hobbies have a pool of other individuals that they can draw emotional support and comfort. There are times when they can also learn from shared experiences. Sharing our feelings with others is a way to connect with others as well as relieve the stress and anxiety we may be feeling.
My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
Staff is very helpful and always concerned about my Mother’s needs, the interior and grounds maintenance is exceptional. Dining provides healthy menus to choose from. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. Best decision we ever made was bringing my mom here.
