Park Vista Aug Blog- Intranet

According to the CDC, 20% of people over the age of 55 struggle with their mental health, and as adults age, depression and anxiety are more likely to go undiagnosed. With mental health concerns coming to light with the COVID-19 Pandemic, many people felt isolated and alone over the past year. When it comes to making the decision if a senior living facility is the best choice for your loved one, Park Vista would like to highlight the benefits of senior care as it relates to mental health and socialization. 

  1. Sense of community: Senior living facilities provide a great sense of community by providing socialization opportunities for the residents. Some of Park Vista’s favorite resident activities include happy hour, gardening, chair yoga, field trips around the city.
  2. Sense of safety & protection: Growing physical health concerns often come with age, and having the support and security of Park Vista staff on hand offers a sense of safety and relief for residents. Residents struggling with mental or physical health will always receive quality care from our qualified nurses and staff.
  3. Connection: Park Vista employees truly love and treat residents like they are their own families. Their top priority is ensuring their happiness and health, and they create unique and meaningful connections with each resident. Not only do residents make friends and have ample social opportunities with each other, but they also develop deep connections with our staff.
