Building a strong community begins with connections, and friends are essential to that. At Melody Living in Colorado Springs, we believe that our senior residents thrive to their fullest when they have a say in their community and what better way to build your community than through friendships? We’re not just talking about fostering new friendships, but also bringing existing friendships into the community as well. Studies show that friendships are undoubtedly beneficial for the well-being of people and when the friendships have deep roots and have many years behind them, the benefit is all the greater.
Leading an active lifestyle at any age is important. For seniors, this is no exception. However, what our bodies may have been more comfortable achieving in our youth aren’t always suitable for our wiser bodies. This doesn’t mean, however, that older adults should avoid physical activities. Learning what is appropriate for all bodies is a crucial part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
