Articles, activities for boomers & seniors
As a senior, you may find that as you age, friends and family members may have moved away, or are no longer around to socialize with daily. Instead of feeling alone, consider moving to a senior community where you can live with an abundance of new friends!
Independent Living communities are just the right fit for active, independent seniors who are able to care for themselves, but are looking for a variety of services and programs that encourage them to live worry-free. Best of all, now that you have more free time, you can pursue new hobbies and interests and enjoy a vibrant lifestyle throughout your senior years.
In addition, independent living communities are just that: communities. You are never more than a few feet away from seniors like yourself, so you can have daily interactions that will prevent you from becoming lonely. You’ll never have to eat another meal alone, as there are so many new neighbors to dine with daily. Catch a movie, enjoy a live concert, or meet some pals for happy hour; you’ll always have someone nearby to keep you company!
Companionship has been linked to decreasing depression in seniors, as well as improving mental health and increasing feelings of independence and worthiness. Socialization and companionship also enhances physical health, as seniors are more likely to take walks with friends and engage in social activities. Independent Living features and amenities vary from one community to another. For instance, Traditions of Hanover in Bethlehem include spacious apartments with full kitchens, an energetic social calendar, restaurant-quality dining, movie theater, game room, fireside lounge, and more!
