Community Living Is Good for Your Health

Studies show your health is better if where you’re living provides you with regular meals, lots of friends, and the spontaneity of neighborhood social and recreational activities. One study found that Members of communities with a full continuum of care such as Park Springs were more likely to report that their current health status was better than it had been in the previous two years, as compared with seniors who remained in their houses.

The study of Independent Living Residents and the Communities in Which They Reside was published by the American Seniors Housing Association. It was based on written surveys completed by 1,053 residential living residents and the staff of those 200 communities. To learn how you could live a healthier, happier life, visit
