Why Is Spirituality Important for Seniors?
Spirituality encompasses so much more than just traditional church services. Upside understands the important role faith plays in our members’ lives, so we do everything we can to encourage it in a personalized and genuine way.
For many seniors, spirituality creates a strong sense of community that is at the core of most faith groups. You can form and strengthen valuable relationships by getting involved in your faith and living it fully. Whether it’s through traditional group services or praying with friends, Upside makes it easy to live out your faith every day.
Another reason seniors should continue their spiritual journey when living in one of Upside’s premium 55+ apartments is that practicing religion can help slow cognitive decline and reduce the occurrence of cognitive disorders. Since practicing religion involves socialization and mental stimulation, it’s a great way for seniors to focus on their well-being inside and out.
