Top 3 Reasons Why Elderly Need To Be Around Their Peers

We know that many people think that homes for elderly are sad places, but to show you that not everything needs to be so gloomy, we have given you here main reasons why it is necessary for elderly to be surrounded by their peers.

Friends Are Important

Friends are important, and this goes for all stages of our lives. If you think that you would be happier without friends, you forget that people are social animals. Being surrounded by people diminishes the chances of developing some psychological states such as anxiety or depression. It is easy for elderly people to slip into these states because they are not surrounded by people at work as younger people are.

Peers Understand Each OtherPeers Understand Each Other

People of your age will understand some common problems you might share, as certain references that you share. It is a lot easier to find common ground and make lasting friendships. It is why we insist it is a great idea to be surrounded by people of your age, rather than younger people – even if they are your family members. It is a lot easier to find commonalities, and you will also have a great time.

Families Are Sometimes Just Too Busy

Families these days have a lot on their plate. Even grandparents in large families, once they lose their partner, can feel the weight that they bring to the daily routine. In addition to that, these people often need care that the family cannot provide. At our facilities we treat you like our family, give you the opportunity to live your life with peers and find new friends, we give you expert medical treatments on a day-to-day basis, and we take care of you. It takes off the weight off the family that is sometimes too busy to take quality care of the elderly family member.

When We Get Up…

Our family makes sure that everyone gets enough sleep, this is why we do not insist on getting up at the same time as everyone else. If you like to sleep in, you could do that, as the breakfast bar is open until 11. However, the majority of our clients do prefer to wake up early and do tai chi in our garden. This very popular activity is the main culprit for the longevity of many Chinese people, and our residents just adore it!

Breakfast Bar

At the breakfast bar you can pick and choose your breakfast, but of course, we make sure that the food which is off limits for some residents does not end up on their plate. We provide health options that keep our residents happy but also full until lunch time.

In the morning our common pastime activities include playing chess or watching TV. Sometimes we also have lectures and different events to fill the time till lunch.
