Social connection is very important to human life. It is something that we all wish for and need in order to thrive. At Arbor Village Nursing & Rehabilitation, social interaction has the potential to greatly influence the residents’ quality of life. One positive interaction can set off a chain reaction that enhances everything.
At Arbor Village Nursing & Rehabilitation, our team understands that socializing is very important to our residents. We ensure that our residents have many opportunities to not only interact with each other but also with our staff members and volunteers. This can be in the form of group activities, face-to-face talks or even just a smile or a friendly greeting.
Social connection brings many benefits to our environment. It can make individuals feel much less lonely and isolated, elevate their moods to promote emotional well-being as well as boost physical health.
Our staff has witnessed the benefits of social interaction. People who used to be withdrawn and isolated themselves become more active when they are encouraged to interact. This not only brightens up their living standards, but also really brightens up the community spirit at the nursing home.
Social interaction is very important to our everyday living, and it is very relevant in a nursing home environment. At Arbor Village Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, it is understood by our staff as well. Efforts are made to create opportunities for residents to connect with each other and the community.
