Title: Options to remain independent after retirement.

Options to remain Independent after Retirement.
  • Encourage seniors to keep up with their hobbies
    and interests. Whether this is knitting in the
    afternoons or going to meetings with their Red
    Hat Society club, the more seniors can continue
    to do while living in their retirement
    communities that they also did while living at
    home, the more independent they will feel.

  • Help seniors stay physically active. Physical
    activity is one of the most important components
    of a senior's overall health and well-being.
    Physical activity not only has some great
    cardiovascular benefits and can help seniors
    release endorphins, it can also help seniors stay
    healthier so they can stay independent longer.
    Seniors who exercise daily are likely to be
    stronger, more flexible and more mobile. They are
    also likely to fall and more likely to be able to
    walk around and do things for themselves longer.

  • Keeping seniors socially engaged. The more
    seniors can spend time socializing with friends
    and family, the more independent they will feel.
    Seniors not only need to visit with their friends
    and loved ones, but they need to be able to leave
    their retirement homes for parties, events,
    gatherings and holidays. Seniors who have a
    healthy social life not only tend to feel less
    isolated, but they are also more likely to have
    higher self-esteem.

  • Consider pet-friendly communities for seniors
    with four-legged companions. Getting to keep a
    beloved pet and care for that pet is a great way
    for seniors to feel independent.
