Senior Living | 02/26/21
A desire for connection is inherent to our nature as human beings. It’s a fundamental need, much like the need for food, water and shelter. Some studies even show that social relationships have a significant impact on our mental and physical health — with one specific study showing that, when combined with a healthy lifestyle, strong social connections increase longevity by 50 percent.
Crestwood Manor residents Frank and Millie Rieder are just one example of how social interaction can impact seniors. “We’re enriched with friends from here and friends from our church who’ve joined us. We’re very content here!” And if you speak to other residents on our campus, you’ll hear similar stories over and over.
At Crestwood Manor, we offer you a variety of opportunities to connect with your neighbors and develop close friendships. If you’d like to make the most of your golden years at a Life Plan Community like Crestwood Manor, below are a few ways you can benefit from friendships in retirement.
Whether you have a set goal in mind like dancing at your grandchild’s wedding or just want to join in a water aerobics class, our holistic wellness program — LivWell — can help you address your personal goals through a completely customized program. Through this program, you can reap the benefits of a healthy lifestyle while enjoying fun with friends.
There are even more ways to enjoy friendships in retirement at Crestwood Manor. Karen Bokert is one of the many residents taking advantage of all we have to offer. “A lifelong artist, I’m delighted to meet with a small group of serious painters at Crestwood Manor. My husband Ed and I appreciate that there is a dedicated LivWell program here.” She also added, “We’ve recently begun offering a meditation workshop here for residents. I am a certified chair yoga instructor and I’m pleased to have a core group of people attend my weekly chair yoga sessions, something I offer as a gift to the community. We are so delighted with the openness to new ideas we have found at Crestwood Manor and the willingness to have new residents share their talents and interests with everyone.”
