Questions to Help You Make an Informed DecisionTransitioning into an active living community is an involved process. This opportunity will require an informed decision in order to put you in the best position for a great future. With many options for senior living communities in the Atlanta and Decatur areas, narrowing down the right one for you may take some time. To help you through this process, we’ve listed out a few questions to ask yourself and to ask when touring active living communities.
Doing The Right Thing Can Be LonelyHumans are social creatures. It’s in our nature to come together both physically and emotionally. But when staying apart becomes a matter of public health, it’s equally natural to feel isolated and lonely. Social connection is an important aspect of overall wellbeing. The longer the isolation, the higher the risk of developing depression or anxiety. Don’t let this scare you, though! There are many ways to combat this, and people have been finding new and creative ways to stay engaged and productive no matter the circumstances. Here are just a few great strategies for staying connected during quarantine. Note: If you're feeling a persistent sadness or anxiety that interferes with day-to-day life, consider talking to a therapist, which is also available online.
What can you possibly give your still active, still youthful dad this Father’s Day? Yes, he may seem to have everything, but there are still a lot of things that he’ll surely appreciate, especially if it comes from you. Admittedly, coming up with a great gift idea can be a monumental task when you first think about it, but if you just take some time to understand what your Dad likes and enjoys, you’ll surely find something special. And, here are some more ideas from Holbrook Life, your senior living community provider for Acworth, Woodstock Dunwoody.
Holbrook Community Says "Don't Let Covid-19" Keep You From Good HealthIt's true, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on everyone's lifestyles. Even the most happiest of introverts can find themselves questioning the contentment of such a long period of time in quarantine. But for active senior adults, this period of isolation can actually become one of the best events to ever happen for their better health. The key is finding your personal active lifestyle, within your own living space.
Covid-19, We Have A Lot To Learn
Friends, there is so much we don’t know about this virus. And we may not know for years. However, there is a lot of evidence-based protocols that stimulate the immune system, prepare it to fight viruses and raise its ability to withstand an “attack” on the body. Viruses like cancer cells, are always in the body. It’s the ability of your body to fight this with faith that gives you hope.
