Here at Inspired Living, we believe that senior living should be enjoyable and enriching. Our residents have schedules filled to the brim with fun and social activities. We also encourage families to join in the fun to make the transition to assisted living in Delray Beach more pleasant. This summer, we’re hosting summer picnics, and the whole family is invited! Summer picnics don’t just give us the opportunity to eat delicious food. There are also a number of cognitive, emotional, and health benefits. Read on to learn five reasons to join your loved one for a summer picnic at their senior living community in Delray Beach.
1. A Dose of Vitamin D
Vitamin D plays a major role in our overall well-being: it gives our immune system a boost, regulates our emotions, supports bone health, and more. Many seniors don’t get enough vitamin D because they don’t spend much time in the sun, which is our primary source of usable vitamin D. By attending a picnic with your loved one, you can encourage them to get outdoors for the day and reap the benefits of the sunshine.
2. A Chance for Movement
In today’s world, it’s easy to get stuck behind a screen. From TVs to iPads to smartphones, we have so many options for digital entertainment. While there’s nothing wrong with a little screen time, a summer picnic encourages your loved one to set down the screens and enjoy some fun outdoor activities.
3. Genuine Face Time
Research shows that face-to-face communication can help to reduce our chances of developing depression. Phone calls and video chats are a must to stay in touch long-distance, but coming to visit can make an even more profound impact. If your loved one is in our memory care community in Delray Beach, mental health support can go a long way toward slowing the loss of cognitive function.
4. New Memories
If you have children of your own, we encourage you to bring them along for our summer picnics! Spending quality time with family elders on a fun-filled day creates lasting core memories that your child will appreciate. Plus, being around children has a way of keeping our spirits young!
5. Shaking Up Routine
At Inspired Living, we believe that senior living communities should make life robust, not mundane. That’s why we offer tons of fun activities, many of which are open to visitors. Help us shake up our daily routine by attending one of our outdoor summer picnics.
