BY THE TIME WE RETIRE, we may think that our years of learning new things are far behind us. However, many seniors have discovered the incredible benefits of lifelong learning in their community in senior living in St. George. Whether through formal courses, or independent study, continuing education and learning new hobbies allow seniors to experience greater well-being and quality of life.
There is no better time to learn something new than in senior living. Not only do seniors have plenty of free time, but they no longer have the mental stimulation from a job. To keep the mind healthy and sharp, we must continue challenging our brains to learn new things.
At Spring Gardens Senior Living in St. George, we dedicate ourselves to helping our residents engage in a stimulating environment. We commit to creating opportunities that lead to personal growth. Continued learning helps keep the mind sharp and provides a way to connect with others and develop new meaningful relationships.
BENEFITS TO LEARNING FOR SENIORS
Senior Living in St. George truly has advantages when it comes to lifelong learning. Having completed schooling and a career, the options and opportunities to learn are endless. Read below for some of the benefits seniors experience when they continue learning:
- Follow your passion – Nothing is holding you back from learning what you’re interested in anymore. You have the freedom to pursue those things you’ve always been passionate about but never had the time for.
- Stay mentally sharp – Learning new things increases our cognitive health as we form stronger connections within the brain. Studies show that increased mental activity associated with acquiring new knowledge, thinking critically, applying new information to life can slow down cognitive decline. Seniors who actively engage in mental stimulation are almost three times less likely to develop dementia than those who do not.
- Social connections – When we retire, we no longer see coworkers daily. It can be easy to become isolated at home. When we continue learning, we create opportunities to meet others that share our interests.
We are dedicated to creating new opportunities for seniors to experience the greatest joys in life while taking proactive steps toward excellent health and happiness. Continued learning is just one of the many ways we promote the best senior lifestyles we can imagine for our residents.
