Finding Friendship in a Senior Living Community

|

Making friends later in life can be challenging, but friendship is important for our health and wellbeing, especially as we get older. Finding an activity you enjoy, that can be shared with others, is a great way to meet new people.

 

Start a Club

You will likely find an abundance of people who enjoy reading as much as you do. Starting a book club is an excellent way to start a conversation on a topic of mutual interest. 

Take a Class

If being creative is your passion, participating in an art class is a great way to meet other people who share your sense of artistry. 

Get Moving

If you have a love for the outdoors, walking is an excellent low-impact way to get your body moving and make friends to boot. 

Play Games

Nothing brings people together quite like a game of trivia or bingo. People who play games tend to be more cheerful, energized and socially engaged.
