Loneliness can be difficult for those living on their own

There are many wonderful benefits to retirement living especially around the holiday season. The holidays are a wonderful time of year to relax, unwind and connect with family and friends. However, it can also be a difficult time for those living on their own. Statistic Canada states as many as 1.4 million Canadian seniors report feeling lonely, and studies are showing that loneliness can negatively affect both physical and mental health. Regardless of the level of care, retirement living provides opportunities for interaction at every corner. From nurses to care aids to fellow residents and activities that provide fulfilment each day, retirement living provides instant friendship to seniors who might otherwise have felt the burden of living alone.
