With growing age, health care needs begin to change. In order to maintain healthy relationships with loved ones, many consider moving to a low care facility which can suit their medical needs and lifestyle. Low care facilities offer required assistance with daily life tasks while maintaining the level of independence one desires.
Low care facilities also provide ample opportunities of social interaction with other residents and the staff. Staying socially active provides numerous benefits to seniors which also reduces risks for chronic conditions like osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
There are myriad options for social activities in a low care facility. Some of the most common activities which are usually organized in assisted living facilities include fitness classes, communal dining, frequent visits from family members, scheduled events, art and music classes, discussion groups and book clubs. When you are looking around for a low care facility, choose the one which offers various interesting social activities to keep your loved one engaged.
