Why are social activities so important?
We know that loneliness and social isolation can increase health risks in older people and has been associated with health issues such as depression, sleep problems, hypertension, stress, and mental health problems.
According to Age UK, nearly a million older people in the UK go for more than a month without speaking to anyone. It is normal for social networks to get smaller as we get older and even just thinking about making new friends or socialising more can be overwhelming. And that’s where Mayfair Care agency can help.
The benefits of taking up a social activity
Social activities can help you or your loved one in so many ways, from helping to maintain social connections and reducing feelings of loneliness to introducing new hobbies or skills or revisiting old ones. Socialising has also been shown to help us stay mentally sharp in old age.
Although everyone has unique needs, and physical abilities may differ greatly, we find that everyone benefits from occasional (and preferably regular) socialising. A social event can be something to look forward to, enjoy at the time and then look back on and reflect on.
