The Importance of Senior Friendships in Tallahassee Assisted Living

March 31, 2021

There are plenty of well-known factors that promote healthy aging: exercising, getting quality sleep, a balanced diet, and so on. These are important at all stages of life but are especially sure to enhance older adults’ well-being. But, did you know that friendships have just as important of an influence on healthy aging? As relationships evolve over time, having a supportive circle of friends can help you live a happier, healthier life. Read on to learn more about how fostering friendships is an integral part of our Westminster Oaks community.

Connecting During COVID-19

Our way of life across all ages has changed ever since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, but there are still ways for seniors to maintain relationships with those they care about even if it is not as feasible to meet face-to-face all the time. According to a recent report, 46% of adults over the age of 65 use Facebook on a regular basis and several free chatting platforms exist, such as Skype and Zoom, which enable anyone to connect over long distances. Many seniors report that these social media platforms provide important ways to remain engaged in the lives of their loved ones and even revive old friendships, even if we are spending more time than ever away from others.

Rebuilding Social Networks

Later in life, social circles naturally decrease for many reasons. Older adults may uproot and move away to be closer to family or to escape colder climates, and friends may pass away. Rebuilding your social network can be challenging at an advanced age but there are a few ways to make it happen! Locate interest groups, such as a gardening club or walking group, or participate in workshops to find other adults in your age range with mutual interests. By living in an assisted living community, you will have a natural exposure to other residents and grow friends. These connections are the support you will depend on during the mountains and valleys of life!

How Friends Influence Health

Surrounding yourself with friends who share similar values and interests is a good way to foster healthy living. For example, if you are practicing a more mindful diet for your health, eating with friends who share a similar nutritional approach is sure to keep you honest to your diet. Similarly, by connecting with friends who recognize the severity of the current health crisis, you will enjoy a life that is safer and easier by reducing risks and exposures to disease.

There are many ways for residents to pursue happiness at Westminster Oaks, where you will learn to embrace life to the fullest! We put your lifestyle first with wellness classes and lifelong learning opportunities through a unique and innovative partnership with Florida State University. Enjoy a lifestyle enriched by exclusive access to the arts with great amenities and hospitality services to match and discover culture in the heart of Florida’s beautiful capital city. Whatever puts a smile on your face, we know you will find it at Westminster Oaks in Tallahassee, FL!
