One group of people who have suffered most from loneliness as a result of the ongoing pandemic are seniors, especially those living alone outside of a dedicated senior living community. With visitors keeping away to protect their elderly loved ones, seniors can feel increasingly isolated from those around them.
However, seniors living in dedicated communities have been able to combat loneliness through the numerous activities offered with a supportive team of staff and other residents around them. In this article, we share with you some top tips that senior living communities have adopted to combat loneliness in seniors.
Game Nights can Significantly Reduce Loneliness in Seniors
The best part about a community of seniors living together is that they are able to enjoy the same recreational activities. Game nights such as bingo, card games and trivia contests are organized regularly at Conservatory At Alden Bridge to keep our residents engaged and involved and their spirits up.
We offer a wide range of amenities at Conservatory At Alden Bridge, including lush, landscaped gardens where residents can take a relaxing, peaceful walk. Although local trips had to be limited ever since the start of the ongoing pandemic, outdoor activities such as bird watching can still be carried out with certain precautions in place and minimal risk.
Classes to Combat Loneliness in Seniors
The best part about life in a senior living community is the opportunity to participate in the activities you enjoy right at your doorstep. Our amenities include an arts and crafts studio, fitness and wellness center, a heated swimming pool and spa and many more. Residents can participate in classes that suit their interests and spend their time in a meaningful way with social support all around them.
We think that mealtimes are the perfect opportunity for socialization, instead of spending them in silence. This can be a challenge for seniors who live alone and who would usually have guests and loved ones over for mealtimes. The ongoing pandemic has created a few hurdles, but many communities have created inventive ways for seniors to dine together while continuing to be safe.
Benefits of Staying in A Senior Living Community
If you are a senior or have an elderly loved one who has feeling been increasingly isolated since the start of the pandemic, have you considered the move to a senior living community? Contrary to popular misconception, there is nothing dull, dreary, or scary about senior living.
