Social Activities for Seniors at Coulterville Rehabilitation

Socialization and social wellness are important parts of our overall health. For people of any age, socializing can drive away feelings of loneliness, help to sharpen memory and improve cognitive skills, while also increasing a person’s sense of happiness and well-being. Staying social can even help you live longer!

For many seniors, staying social can be a challenge. Some of the most common reasons that seniors do not socialize include:

  • Living alone
  • Settling into an inactive routine
  • Lack of transportation
  • Social anxiety
  • Medical concerns
  • Lack of resources

Seniors who live with loved ones or who live in a senior living community have access to social resources, senior living community activities and senior living events.
