Social Activities and Outings for Seniors in Colorado Springs, CO & Dallas, TX
Gentle Shepherd Plans Social Activities for your Loved-One to enjoy!
You may ask yourself how important is social support as a person ages? While this seems like an easy answer, as most people would not choose isolation and loneliness verses social connections. Researchers have found that a lack of social support can greatly hinder a person’s overall quality of life! It has been proven that a lack of social support is related to negative impacts on health and well-being, especially for the elderly.
It is very important that your loved-one have a variety of positive social supports and activities as it contributes to their overall psychological and physical well- being. As people get older, they often find themselves spending more and more time at home alone. The isolation can lead to depression. Remaining socially active helps improve physical health and reduces the chance of two common issues with the elderly, depression and isolation.
