I came to the Barrington in 2009; this place saved my life. The room my daughter picked out for me overlooks the school and the children who go there. The trees and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. I love to walk outdoors and meditate. I also enjoy our trips to the beaches and parks. I am on the welcoming committee, serve at happy hour, and I go with the Marketing Team to do outreach. This is my home and the staff is my family.
Promoting Social Connections in Senior Living Communities Back
Social interactions are important for keeping the mind, body, and soul healthy. Believe it or not, social connections have a strong tie to physical and cognitive function. The lack of social relationships leads to loneliness, isolation, unhealthy behaviors, and depression. At The Barrington, it is our goal to promote social activities and interaction to keep residents engaged, healthy, and happy.
It starts with the personal relationship between the staff and residents. Our independent living and assisted living community in Largo, Florida has one thing in mind, the well being of our residents. Each of our residents are important to us and our staff has personal relationships with every one of our cherished residents. Even while we continue to socially distance, we encourage residents to interact with our team and other residents. The assisted living community at The Barrington has a private area for activities and events where residents can engage in a safe environment. The independent senior living community offers more flexibility and engagement between residents and staff through family style events in the arts and crafts room, library and other areas.
Residents in assisted living and independent living have the opportunity to participate in clubs offered daily within the community. At The Barrington, we offer just about everything from playing cards to exercising. These clubs are created and led by our friendly residents who are passionate about the simple joys of life. Our endless list of activities encourage those with similar interests to build and solidify friendships. All of our planned activities, outings, services, and events are safely and strategically developed to ensure there are opportunities for everyone.
Engagement, interaction, and communication are important within our community of wonderful residents. Positive social health is significant in helping you live happily at The Barrington. We believe that nobody should live life alone. When you choose living at The Barrington, you choose friendships, relationships, and support.
