Helping Seniors Feel Young Again

Posted on 07/11/2022

There are a lot of misconceptions about seniors. Many individuals believe that seniors should reduce their activity to avoid injuries. They think that being isolated and lonely is typical or that older adults are too advanced in age to acquire new skills. These are nothing but myths. Instead of putting a halt to your favorite activities, an active and social lifestyle is critical for your general health. Being active has significant benefits for both mental and physical health and will make you feel younger.

All of our resort-style living communities at Liv Generations strive to help you lead an active and social lifestyle. You can live young again and enjoy your life to the utmost with state-of-the-art services, facilities, high-tech features, organized events, classes, and more.

Build New Friendships

How easy was it to make friends as a kid? Finding people who shared your passions was so simple when you were in school. The existence of organized groups like clubs and sports also assisted. In adulthood, forming and maintaining friendships becomes difficult. Work and family take priority, which may limit your socializing time with others and stop you from making new acquaintances.

Humans, however, are social creatures. We enjoy interacting with others. Isolation can increase your risk of various conditions, including clinical depression and cognitive decline. Staying socially engaged might be beneficial in preventing these problems.

To bring back the spark to your social life and help you make lasting friendships, LivGenerations offers plenty of social activities, including:

  • Happy hours
  • Wine tastings
  • Tea parties
  • Holiday parties
  • Themed dinners
  • Movie showings
  • Musical entertainment
  • Trips to various local events

These activities and many others keep our event schedule full with opportunities to spend time with other residents.

Start a New Hobby

Hobbies are more than simply a fun pastime to spend your free time. It turns out that they're also vital for one's mental health. Spending time doing something you enjoy can help decrease your stress and depression levels.

What are your hobbies? When was the last time you used a paintbrush, camera, or other equipment for what you enjoy? If you can't recall, now may be the ideal moment to pick up where you left off. Even if it's been a while since you've done it, finding your stride won't take long.

You may also decide that you wish to learn something new. Maybe there's something you've always wanted to give a shot but never had the opportunity when you were working. Learning something new challenges your brain and keeps it active. You'll enhance your happiness as well as your mental health if you're having a good time while doing it.

You can join a wide range of activities and educational sessions through LivGenerations. Every month, you'll discover new interests and skills to try out. Try your hand at acrylic painting, learn about the geology of our national parks, or play poker.

Keep Your Shape and Stay Active

You've undoubtedly heard a million times that physical activities are an essential component of living a long and healthy life. This is true at every age.

Sedentary behavior has been linked to several health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and cognitive decline. It's not necessary to slow down or give up exercise simply because you're getting older. Engaging in physically active, exciting activities can significantly enhance your health. Lifting weights, practicing yoga, going on excursions, and other types of exercise improve your cardiovascular health, physical strength, flexibility, and balance.

Seniors who can exercise regularly may be able to stay active for an extended period of time. You can swim laps in our saltwater pool, participate in various fitness classes at the Liv Fit gym, or go for walks around the beautiful grounds at LivGenerations. With so many alternatives available, you'll find something you enjoy for sure.

Get Furry Friend in Your Life

Pets can improve your overall quality of life. Cats and dogs (and other tiny animals) increase happiness, give purpose to life, and decrease stress. In particular, dogs assist you in getting more physical activity by requiring regular walks. And remember that adopting an animal not only gives you happiness but also allows them a second chance at a happy life.

Whether you have a pet or are thinking about adopting one, the LivGenerations sites are pet-friendly. Take your canine companion out for some quality time (and socialization) on your daily walks while enjoying the beautiful areas of the community.

Enjoy Healthy Meals Any Time

You don't always want to prepare a meal. You won't have to travel far at LivGenerations for a delicious dinner. All of our lodgings include several different dining options, including al fresco dining at the Veranda Grille, restaurant-style food at the Crave Dining Room, and beverages and snacks at the Gen Bistro.

We specialize in creating a positive experience for our residents by providing fresh, high-quality ingredients of exceptional quality and taste. All of our restaurants feature organic produce, the highest-quality cuts of meat, and the freshest seafood. Our chefs go to great lengths to create healthy and delectable meals.

Get More Free Time to Enjoy

One of the most enjoyable parts of being a kid was having fewer obligations. As an adult, you have a lot on your plate. There was generally something you needed to do, like home maintenance chores going from dish washing to mowing the lawn, among many others. Those chores were frequently in the way of your ability to enjoy yourself.

At LivGenerations, you may reclaim a portion of your youth. Someone else will handle chores like maintenance and cleaning in our communities. You'll have significantly more free time to do everything you've ever wanted on a timetable that works for you and your lifestyle.

Reclaim Your Youthful Spirit at LivGenerations

Age shouldn't stop you from pursuing your passions or make you socially isolated. Your retirement years are an excellent time to recapture some of the pleasure of your youth. We provide numerous options for people in their 60s and over to continue feeling young, including social activities, physical fitness sessions, and learning opportunities. We make it possible for you to feel like you're in your 20s once more!
