Dec 09, 2019 09:04AM
Q: What are some ways, other than clubs, that I can get social in my community?
A: Social connection is just as beneficial to your health as exercise and eating habits. There is no downside to having a full social life. If clubs aren’t your scene, look at the calendar of events in your community and keep an eye out for places that have daily activities. If you live in a community where there’s diversity, it can be fascinating to get to know your neighbors and learn their stories. Find your niche, and let that path lead you toward your next adventure.

Q: How do I know when to consider living in a retirement home?
A: If home maintenance, shopping, and prepping meals have become too much, or if you’re looking to explore your interests and meet new friends, retirement living may be for you. Today’s retirement communities offer a wealth of resort-style services, amenities, and delicious dining; not to mention the comfort of knowing that support services are available if the need arises. Look for communities that are licensed and CARF accredited, as a testament to the quality of care provided.
