Promoting Social Connections in Senior Living Communities Back
Social interactions are important for keeping the mind, body, and soul healthy. Believe it or not, social connections have a strong tie to physical and cognitive function. The lack of social relationships leads to loneliness, isolation, unhealthy behaviors, and depression. At Lake Forest Park, it is our goal to promote social activities and interaction to keep residents engaged, healthy, and happy.
It starts with the personal relationship between the staff and residents. Our memory care, independent living and assisted living community in Ft. Pierce, Florida has one thing in mind, the well being of our residents. Each of our residents are important to us and our staff has personal relationships with every one of our cherished residents. Even while we continue to socially distance, we encourage residents to interact with our team and other residents. The memory care and assisted living community at Lake Forest Park has a private area for activities and events where residents can engage in a safe environment. The independent senior living community offers more flexibility and engagement between residents and staff through family style events in the arts and crafts room, library, and other areas.
Residents in memory care, assisted living and independent living have the opportunity to participate in clubs offered daily within the community. At Lake Forest Park, we offer just about everything from playing cards to exercising. These clubs are created and led by our friendly residents who are passionate about the simple joys of life. Our endless list of activities encourage those with similar interests to build and solidify friendships. All of our planned activities, outings, services, and events are safely and strategically developed to ensure there are opportunities for everyone.
Engagement, interaction, and communication are important within our community of wonderful residents. Positive social health is significant in helping you live happily at Lake Forest Park. We believe that nobody should live life alone. When you choose living at Lake Forest Park, you choose friendships, relationships, and support.
