At Silver Comet Village, our approach to senior health is simple; we seek out a variety of activities that provide health benefits to all of our residents - mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. Silver Comet Village takes the well-being of our residents very seriously. 

At Silver Comet Village, we strive to enhance your quality of life by providing innovative programs, attentive staff, and an active and engaging environment that helps you achieve the lifestyle you want and the peace of mind that you deserve. If you’re looking for activities or exercises to improve your health, you’ve come to the right place!

Mental Health and Mindfulness

Mental health activities are certainly critical to maintaining a healthy lifestyle! These activities are especially important as you age. Mental health exercises and activities contribute plenty of health benefits to seniors, including:

  • Reducing feelings of stress and anxiety
  • Sharpening reasoning and problem-solving skills
  • Improving memory function
  • Increasing feelings of confidence

From puzzles to reading books, you can do what you love and reap the benefits. The brain is a vital organ that needs to be exercised too! 

Social Interaction

Social interactivity provides various health benefits to any age group, especially older adults. Isolation is an increasing risk to senior health; though rarely discussed, at least a quarter of seniors over the age of 65 experience social isolation. Joining a senior living community like Silver Comet Village can provide health benefits for seniors looking to socialize and combat the adverse effects of social isolation. 

According to Dr. Suzanne E. Salamon, associate chief for clinical geriatrics at Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, from "...helping to prevent memory loss, social engagement is very important. Talking and interacting with people takes energy and makes you work harder, which stimulates your brain." Silver Comet Village offers social activities ranging from book club to recipe-sharing and cooking club to crafts; we offer something for everyone to engage, connect, and enjoy retirement!

Physical Activities

The truth behind the importance of physical activities for seniors is that they don’t have to be intense to provide health benefits. A nice walk, easy stretching, a game of bocce ball, or even an afternoon of gardening can provide an array of health benefits! Physical health is important no matter what age you are, so don’t skip out. Physical activities can even help improve your mental health and your overall attitude.

Exercise for seniors

While certain activities may be too intense for certain people, any physical activity is better than none. That’s why Silver Comet Village provides our residents with ample opportunity for physical activities. At Silver Comet Village, we recognize that every resident is unique with their own preferences and abilities. That’s why we provide multiple and various opportunities to be active everyday!

Silver Comet Village is all about celebrating the past and embracing the future. Your future could be here with us, living the retirement you have earned, with a tight-knit community that will make you feel supported and at home!
