Transforming Lives: Discover the Power of Assisted Living with Life Enrichment Activities

Worrying about your loved one when they are not with you is natural. But, when you choose the right assisted living facility, you can feel confident that they are being taken care of well and have access to activities that can help them mentally and physically. When you are looking for assisted living with life enrichment activities, Encore Communities offers plenty for your loved one to do while they take advantage of living in a close, tight-knit community. Let’s explore these benefits and look at what residents can expect at Encore Communities.

Benefits of Activities in Assisted Living Facilities

Assisted living facilities offer a variety of activities to keep residents mentally and physically busy. Facilities like Encore Communities have a highly skilled staff that knows the types of activities that their residents will benefit from. Activities aim to help improve the quality of life in assisted living.

Physical Health Benefits

Appropriate exercise in assisted living communities can have many health benefits. These include [1]:

  • Helping to reduce blood pressure
  • Reduce falling risk and fracturing bones
  • Help people with chronic conditions
  • Maintains healthy bones, muscles, and joints
  • It can help to control joint swelling and pain associated with arthritis
  • Improvement of sleep

Mental Health Benefits

Social engagement in assisted living communities can lead to mental health benefits such as:

  • Improving symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Boosting mood and preventing feelings of loneliness

Other Benefits

  • Besides offering physical and mental well-being in assisted living, enrichment activities also provide residents with structure. Structure is vital because it helps to reduce stress and can eliminate uncertainties. This can significantly help new assisted living facility residents who have been apprehensive about moving. Knowing that there are activities and some type of schedule can be comforting.
  • Activities that include playing music or having objects to touch and interact with can also help those with dementia.[2]
  • Doing things that you enjoy can help people feel good about themselves. Studies looking at people’s outlooks on life and how long they live show that happiness, life satisfaction, and a sense of purpose can help to improve longevity.[3]
  • When people are happier and healthier, they are more likely to be resilient and better able to cope with difficult situations.
  • Research also shows that participating in mentally stimulating activities or being involved in physical activity can positively affect memory.[3]

When you consider all of the benefits of staying active, it’s more important than ever to find an assisted living community that provides a wide variety of activities for your loved one.
