Just because someone is older, it doesn’t mean the need for company, support and love lessens any. Studies have found a consistent social life is particularly important to seniors’ emotional, physical and mental wellbeing. However due to lifestyle changes many seniors experience such as retiring from the workplace, the death of a spouse and/or other close family and friends, and no longer driving, older adults can find themselves socially isolated.
Having a healthy social life alleviates feelings of loneliness as well as helps to reduce the likelihood of depression, which is common among seniors. It also helps to stave off cognitive decline and lessen anxiety.
Seniors with a more robust social life have been found to exercise more, which in itself can lead to better mental as well as physical health by strengthening the heart and immune system. Researchers have found longevity to be another benefit of socialization, and maintaining a healthy social life is believed to improve seniors’ self-esteem and sense of worth.
