The publication focuses on the importance of enjoying an active social life to maintain healthy aging. In addition, the guide highlights how keeping the brain engaged as individuals age can benefit memory and cognitive function in a major way and even and aid Alzheimer’s prevention.

After retirement, many seniors can find themselves alone at home for prolonged periods of time. Unfortunately, this solitude can have a detrimental effect on their mental health and general wellbeing. This is why it is so important to schedule time to stay engaged and enjoy time spent with other people.

Seniors who remain mentally stimulated through social activities tend to have an easier time staying focused and mentally alert. This stimulation makes it easier for individuals to perform essential daily tasks enabling them to live independently. This activity improves the quality of life for the individual and their careers and families.

Turnagain Social Club provides therapeutic activities, personal care, supervision, nursing services, transportation, and meals, for individuals who are disabled and seniors aged 55 and older.

A spokesperson for Turnagain Social Club said, “We encourage seniors to socialize with friends and family as often as possible, whether that’s in person or online. It’s important to focus on having fun and being a little bit silly. Take the time to speak with an old friend and reminisce or perhaps play a game. It’s a great way to take care of your mental health. Turnagain Social Club is a great place for seniors in Anchorage to socialize. With weekly activities catered to the interests of our members, we take the guesswork out of planning activities. Our staff can even pick members up from their homes so they can join their friend at the club.”
