For seniors, one of the best investments in overall health is remaining
socially active. Although physical and mental health issues can make it
more challenging to be socially engaged, residing in an assisted living
home can help seniors avoid isolation while getting the care they need.
In addition to helping seniors reduce the risk of depression and the need
for mental health care, being socially active can also help seniors avoid
dementia. Research shows that being engaged socially reduces the risk
of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. For seniors who are
already receiving memory care, socializing improves quality of life and
reduces the impact of isolation and loneliness.
Avalon Memory Care provides
continuous care for residents with dementia in a warm and social home-like environment. In addition to mental health
