Assisted Living in O’Fallon, MO
We are happy to announce that we are broadening our range of services through the creation of an assisted living facility within our campus, the Abbey Cottage, by the first half of 2022. Located on the first floor of Abbey Senior Health, the Cottage is a 10-bed assisted living facility for those who need supportive services while still maintaining a level of independence.
Benefits of Senior Living Activities
Human Beings are naturally social creatures that desire community and companionship in a safe, secure, and supportive environment. Those without social interaction often experience loneliness, isolation, depression, and reduced physical health. Therefore, seniors living alone are at an increased risk of serious health issues like dementia, cardiovascular problems, and osteoporosis.
Although long-term loneliness negatively affects a senior’s emotions, behaviors, cognitive abilities, and overall health, socialization offers numerous benefits:
- Improved physical health
- Reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
- Lowered blood pressure
- Reduced stress
- Reduced risk of anxiety and depression
- Reduced risk of adverse health conditions
Senior living communities such as Abbey Senior Health can help prevent isolation and encourage social engagement. It’s difficult to remain isolated when residing in a communal setting with friends and peers. Plus, we focus on offering enriching events and activities that cater to various interests and abilities. It’s our goal to ensure residents stay healthy and social.
