Life Enrichment Programs at The Beehive
The Beehive feels strongly that Life Enrichment programs support residents' physical, social, emotional, and cognitive well-being. Our effective program doesn't just offer a calendar full of activities, they keep seniors engaged and active in our community.
Having activities that suit your loved one's lifestyle and interests is essential to their overall quality of life. Here are three reasons we offer life enrichment programs at our communities.
1. Keeping seniors active is essential to healthy aging. Staying active can help seniors manage chronic medical conditions, maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints, and prolong independence. Unfortunately, many seniors struggle to remain active after retirement. Life enrichment programs that include physical activity can keep seniors moving.
2. Fostering social connections can reduce stress and anxiety, lower the risk of depression, and lead to a longer life. It also provides a sense of belonging, which contributes to self-esteem. It can be challenging for seniors to stay socially active, especially after retirement when they don't have as many opportunities to meet people. Life enrichment programs with a social focus, such as those in a group setting, can help seniors make friends.
3. Preserving cognitive health by keeping the mind active improves memory and reasoning abilities, and gives an overall sense of achievement. By participating in life enrichment programs, seniors can preserve and sometimes improve their brain health. Reading, puzzles, and board games are all examples of life enrichment activities that stimulate the mind.
