At Legend Senior Living, we understand that the best connections between residents and associates happen over a shared experience. Our Life Enrichment programs are designed to provide the opportunity for you to enjoy any event, program, trip, or another opportunity during your day - you make the call about what comes next.
Benefits of Activity Programs for Seniors
Older adults are at an increased risk of isolation and feelings of loneliness due to shrinking social circles, lack of transportation, and mobility challenges. Fortunately, choosing senior living at a Legend Senior Living residence can decrease isolation and increase connection with new neighbors and friends.
We know that residents can benefit from consistent connections with neighbors because we see it daily in the residences. However, research has also demonstrated that senior enrichment programs and senior care activities have positive health outcomes, including:
- Decreased rates of depression and anxiety
- Reduced risk of heart disease
- Decreased risk of obesity
- Increased immune system response
- Decreased rate of cognitive decline
A busy social calendar has many mental and physical health benefits!
