4 Benefits of Joining Social Activities for Senior Citizens

4 Benefits of Joining Social Activities for Seniors

by  Sally Perkins

Social activities are essential components to living a healthy lifestyle, even during your elder stage. That is why many assisted living communities offer activities that are designed to nurture the mental and physical health of residents. While the needs of senior citizens differ in lifestyle and physical challenges, participation in independent activities, outings, and classes should be a must-have in elderly homes.

Joining social activities can do wonders for seniors, as it will help them maintain their cardiovascular health, prevent sudden falls, and promote muscle strength in the body. Emotionally and psychologically, seniors are prone to experience higher rates of anxiety, depression, and other mental health disorders. Here are 4 benefits of joining social activities for seniors.

Build Relationships

As we get older, our opportunities to socialize may slowly begin to fade and lead us to feel lonely and depressed. However, it does not have to be this way. Human nature leads us to crave relationships with others. As we age, life circumstances may push us towards isolation and loneliness unless we decide to take the right steps in promoting new friendships.

Stimulate Enjoyment

Seniors who enjoy social activities are less prone to Alzheimer’s as they are able to keep their minds and body stimulated. Hiring a DJ for weekly events such as dance parties, bingo night and tea dances will benefit the senior audience in many ways.

Whether it is a cooking class, field trips, playing cards, or gardening, taking part in new activities will help stimulate the mind and keep the body engaged. The key is to stimulate enjoyment and keep your brain healthy and sharp.

Physical Activities Reduce High Blood Pressure

As high blood pressure is known as the silent killer, it is commonly found in seniors. Through regular exercise and social activity, elder adults can prevent the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.

Improves Overall Health & Well-being

According to statistics, elder individuals who engage in regular social activities are reported to have higher self-esteem and lower levels of depression and loneliness.

As social isolation is one of the leading causes of depression in seniors, it can easily turn to feelings of despair. However, exciting socialization can play the opposite effect to helping elderly adults feel needed and loved by whom they interact. Planning new and enjoyable activities will bring the best out of elder people who want to continue to enjoy life. Organizing events such as dances with a full-out DJ and catering will make senior living all the more enjoyable.

Gina & Moose’s Sparkling New Years Eve Wedding Reception

From Gina…  Re: Her New Year’s Eve Amazing Wedding.
Good Morning my friend!  I’m just getting a chance now to reach out to you. We got home from Aruba Sunday night and I spent Monday doing, laundry, cleaning toilet bowls, doing errands and attending two wakes…..nothing says welcome back to reality like all that! I came back to work yesterday after not being here for two weeks…..yikes!  And just like that, the wedding is over!  I can’t thank you enough for everything you and your team did to make our wedding the success it was. People are still talking about it…..AND YOU! I can’t tell you how many private messages, text messages, phone calls, etc. Moose and I have been getting raving about you, about Anna, about Rachel………Mike…..even the photo booth guy……Eamon……people LOVED him! We have been inundated with comments about how professional you all were, how much fun, how the photographer wasn’t intrusive or pushy….I could go on and on and on…………. From the start, I knew what I wanted and even more importantly, I knew what I didn’t want. I wanted a party/a celebration……..I wanted no stuffy structure and for people to eat, drink, dance and have fun all night long….and that they did….because of YOU! Thank you Curtis, from the bottom of my heart for making our wedding a night Moose and I will remember the rest of our lives.
I saw the pictures and I love them. I could never find the appropriate words to thank you. So, I will just say it again….thank you Curtis and Anna, for making our wedding a night to remember. We will never forget you or your kindness.

Where do I even begin? Curtis and Anna hands down made my wedding. Almost every guest I have spoken to have RAVED stating that my DJ was the best they have ever experienced and I could not have agreed more. My wedding was originally planned for December 2015 however my husband who is active duty military deployed last minute and I had to change my wedding date just 10 weeks out and Curtis and Anna were beyond amazing and made what could have been a very chaotic and stressful experience a very smooth transition. During planning, Curtis pays so much attention to detail that as a bride I did not have to worry about a single thing. They also made sure details I never would have even considered thinking about were taken care of. During my wedding, Curtis made sure the entire event ran on time and smoothly and made sure I was where I needed to be at all times. I did not have to worry about a thing. On top of being phenomenal DJs and wedding planning assistants, Curtis and Anna helped me to surprise my husband with Rene Rancourt. I recommend Curtis and Anna to not just brides but to ANYONE who needs a DJ for any event. Thank you Curtis and Anna from the bottom of both my heart and John’s for such a fantastic experience. I can say with full confidence, my wedding would not have been such an amazing night without you both there.

Saturday, December 3, 2016, Curtis and Anna from CKE were the DJ/MC’s for the classy winter wedding ceremony and reception of Jill and Nick Nappi-Kaehler at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. Curtis also provided Justice of the Peace services and was a photographer and Kim stepped in as photo editor.  The weather was clear although brisk and windy for the elegant ceremony which was held at Hamilton Hall, also located in Salem. The lighting was soft and warm creating the perfect setting for the bride and groom to exchange vows and promise themselves to each other for all eternity. After a touching and heartfelt speech delivered by the bride’s father, Tom it was the matron of honor, Jordan’s turn to toast her longtime friend and extend best wishes to the happy couple. After a delectable meal, Jill and Nick were ready to bring down the house, dancing the night away and that they did! These party animals rocked out until closing time and still had energy to burn well into the early morning hours! It was an honor to be a part of Jill and Nick’s special day and we were so thrilled they asked us to provide their entertainment.
