Companionship and Community in Senior Living
Mounting evidence shows that companionship and community are a key component to overall health. No longer are they seen as sitting a few rungs up Maslow’s hierarchy of needs; they are foundational to your well-being. This is true across all ages, including seniors. Feeling extreme loneliness, for example, has been shown to increase an older person’s chances of premature death by 14 percent. 
 
A myriad of factors are weighed when deciding to move into a senior living community. The opportunity for companionship and community should be one of them. When researching different senior living options, investigate the opportunities for social connections and interactions at each community.

Music Therapy
Don’t forget to bring tunes to your next visit with an elderly relative in Senior Living

There is mounting buzz around music therapy as one of the most transformative treatments for seniors. “Music has more ability to activate more parts of the brain than any other stimulus,” says renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks in a recently released documentary about music and the elderly, Alive Inside.

The documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen as he demonstrates music’s ability to combat memory loss. Alive Inside won the Audience Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. 

In a clip from the documentary, one aide describes a bed-bound woman she has worked with for two years that “barely opened her eyes, didn’t respond. Once we put the iPod on her she started shaking her feet, moving her head. It was amazing.” 

Across the country, senior living communities are incorporating music as a form of therapy to uplift and engage their residents. Studies have demonstrated its ability to improve memory, lower agitation, and improve cognitive skills.

To be most effective, music should be chosen based on whatever the person’s preference. So next time you’re planning a visit to your elderly relative, ask them about their favorite songs, bands or albums. Then bring them along to listen and groove to during your visit.
