The Health Benefits from Social Interactions for Seniors
Research shows that seniors who are socially active and stay busy volunteering and maintaining a social network are some of the happiest and healthiest of their age group. Studies show they live longer than those who become isolated. The health benefits of volunteerism are well documented, but it is even more powerful when your service gives you a sense of purpose in life.
As the baby boomer generation moves closer to retirement age, many are looking for the best community that offers a social life, recreation, privacy and relaxation, all crucial to staying healthy. Solea Copperfield caters to the needs of their residents who want to be socially, physically and mentally active.
There are some simple steps you can take to ensure you will be healthy and happy long into your life.
Stay Healthy by Staying Active
Staying active and social in retirement are important aspects of healthy aging. It can be quite an adjustment to no longer go to the office every day, but it is important to find a routine. According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, retirees should spend at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week. Solea Copperfield is designed to keep the energy and interactions up so that our residents are happy and healthy.
Stay Connected with a Sense of Community
The feeling of loneliness is very common for seniors. Many have lost a spouse, have frustrations feeling inadequate from physical changes of aging, or socially isolated because their children are busy with their own growing families. At Solea Copperfield, there are daily resident socials. You will have opportunities to meet your neighbors who are at similar stations in their lives. Among many other amenities, Solea Copperfield has a beautiful resort pool with a sun deck, and outdoor grilling stations perfect for having dinner with neighbors. Creating an abundant sense of community among our residents is paramount to us because of the significance a sense of belonging has on a person’s well-being and quality of life. Our residents know their neighbors and often have the same goals of creating lasting friendships together. Our residents may have different interests and lifestyles, but they are like “family” and they look out for each other.
Maintenance-Free Living Allows Time for New Things

Taking advantage of the maintenance free living here at Solea Copperfield will give you the opportunity to do things you always wanted to do but never had time for, such as fitness classes, crafts, sporting events, educational opportunities and many more
