Planning for the Future | 03/31/20
The decision of where to live during your retirement years is an important one. And did you know that, beyond a roof over your head, your residence could offer an increased opportunity at wellbeing?
As part of The Age Well Study, a project conducted by Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging in partnership with Northwestern University, a research team compared wellness outcomes in residents at continuing care retirement communities, also known as Life Plan communities, versus those in the community-at-large.
Participants were asked about their own wellbeing and completed a survey exploring their outcomes in physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual and vocational wellness. Results from the five-year study focus on each of those dimensions of wellness as a framework for examining health.
Residents in continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) report higher satisfaction with happiness, social contact, physical activity, engagement in intellectual activities and understanding of their purpose in life than older adults not living in these communities.
Springpoint is proud to have been selected as a participant in this study. In our communities, including Meadow Lakes, we offer opportunities for residents to engage in the healthy lifestyle they want through socialization, activities and amenities at our CCRCs.
There are many benefits of independent community living, including:
