Learn about Vibrant Senior Living.Almost 95 million Americans (aged 50 and older) make up the country's population today. Elderly people who live alone may experience loneliness as their children start to leave home and start their own households. The elderly who live alone may experience major health problems. Those who live alone "have increasing health difficulties" and "are less able to care for themselves," according to Harvard Medical School. When looking at seniors who have been hospitalized and returned to living alone are proven to be "less likely to improve in function" based on a National Institutes of Health research study.
Despite the fact that 61% of older individuals live in their own homes, the possible health effects are grave.
Living with others offers seniors many social and health advantages, as it can lessen feelings of isolation and loneliness and reduce their "risk for memory loss, depression, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and stress."
Our active living concept at Bridgeway Senior Healthcare gives residents the chance to socialize and make friends with other residents, take part in the community and local events, and, most importantly, foster independence and choice. The original SPICE philosophy of Bridgeway Senior Healthcare serves as the cornerstone for ongoing wellness initiatives as well as the framework for the design of resident activities.
The SPICE strategy, which incorporates five holistic aspects of well-being (Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Cultural, and Emotional), uses a variety of programs to help residents and colleagues lead fulfilling, healthy, stimulating, and pleasant lives.
