Benefits of social connectedness as we age
When it comes to senior health, experts are quick to share advice on maintaining physical wellness through good diet and exercise. But did you know that having an active social life can improve your overall health and well-being, too? It’s true! Not only is spending time with family and friends fun, it’s good for the body and mind, too!
Dr. Deena Goldwater, a cardiologist and geriatrician with Welcome Health and Vice President of Care Delivery echoes that idea, saying, “For seniors, social connectedness has surprisingly powerful effects on overall health.
