Throughout your life, close friends and family have helped you build a solid foundation of trust and compassion. Most of your happiest memories are probably times you shared with people you love. Why should it be any different as you age? Research has shown that social support can actually play a fairly significant role in overall health and well-being, especially in older adults. Spending time with friends and acquaintances can improve your quality of life from a physical and emotional perspective. What is one way your Upside Manager can help you focus on socialization? Community activities and programs.
For seniors, finding various positive outlets out of socialization can reduce stress, fight off depression and anxiety, and reduce the risk of physical health concerns related to social isolation. Socialization has also been proven to combat memory-related cognitive decline.
Upside is all about building a lifestyle that is fully tailored to you. We don’t want you to feel limited to only interacting with individuals with similar beliefs and backgrounds, and that’s why all of our premium apartments are multi-generational. An accumulating body of research on purpose, generativity, relationships, and face-to-face contact suggests that engagement with others that flows down the generational chain may make you healthier, happier, and live longer.
As an Upside member, you can choose how you want to structure the next chapter of your life. That means you can choose from hundreds of curated 55+ independent apartments around the country.
