Seniors who live alone often feel lonely and isolated, both of which can lead to depression. The pandemic made things even worse, forcing seniors and the most vulnerable to stay home. Now more than ever, seniors living alone need stimulation, both mentally and physically. Social activities and exercise are vital to one’s longevity and quality of life, especially for seniors.
According to the National Institute on Aging, “people who engage in meaningful, productive activities with others tend to live longer, boost their mood, and have a sense of purpose. These activities seem to help maintain their well-being and can improve their cognitive function.”
At Kanata’s newest independent living community, The Bradley, seniors can access all-day activities, five-star chef-made meals from scratch, two sets of live-in managers who eat and live with the residents to provide safety and security 24 hours a day. All of these amenities and services combined provide seniors with a family/community feel.
One of The Bradley’s key features is its focus on independent living. Residents can feel self-reliant thanks to the convenient bus service that takes residents to and from appointments, to run errands, to pick up prescriptions, scheduled day trips and much more.
