Aging in a Supportive Community

For NewAldaya residents, socializing within our retirement community provides a range of great benefits to physical and mental health. In fact, making friends and strengthening those connections is integral to improved brain health and a lower risk of dementia. From grabbing coffee to vacationing with a group of friends, any type of social interaction is encouraged.

Aging in a Supportive Community

Benefits of Socialization

Some of the many benefits of an active social life include:

Longer Lifespan

People with more social support tend to live longer than those who are more isolated. This is true even after accounting for one’s overall level of health concerning past illnesses and existing infirmities.

Better Physical Health

Social engagement is associated with a stronger immune system, especially for older adults. This means a heightened ability to fight off colds, the flu, and even some types of cancer.

Better Mental Health

Interacting with others boosts feelings of well-being and decreases feelings of depression. Research has shown that one sure way of improving your mood is to work on building social connections.

Lower Risk of Dementia

More recently, there has been accumulating evidence that socializing is good for your brain health. People who connect with others generally perform better on tests of memory and other cognitive skills. And, in the long run, people with active social lives are less likely to develop dementia than those who are more socially isolated.
