People of any age are happier, healthier, and more fulfilled when physically, mentally, and socially active. This is particularly true for seniors. The harsh reality is that inactivity in seniors can contribute to cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, hypertension, and premature death. Isolation and loneliness are also highly detrimental to the overall well-being of older adults. Group outings for seniors provide all the benefits of physical activity, mental stimulation, and social interaction crucial to optimal health in older adults.

At Aravilla in Sarasota, we understand the importance of group outings. Our senior assisted living community is vibrant and active, providing a wide range of activities to encompass the interests of our residents. Through our senior group outings, residents get to connect with their neighbors and the broader community while exploring new places and having new experiences

Bingo is commonly thought of as a game for the elderly, but did you know it’s beneficial to our health? Here’s more about the benefits of playing bingo. Bingo is stereotypically referred to as one of those “games old people play”, but bingo can actually be a very healthy activity for aging adults. Studies have shown that there are many benefits of playing bingo for seniors in particular. Did you know that bingo for seniors scientifically improves health? It increases social engagement. Playing memory games, like bingo, is great for combating mental illness and memory loss diseases like Alzheimer’s. Brain games help aging adults remain sharp which can help them tackle day-to-day tasks. Another benefit of playing bingo for the elderly is that it supports memory improvement. Seniors must place chips onto their card quickly in bingo, which aides in improving hand-eye coordination. Now that you know the benefits of seniors playing bingo, consider spending time together this week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday to play bingo with your friends at Aravilla.
