Weymouth MA (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
Social connections are essential to a healthy life. Research shows that for seniors, these social interactions are particularly important. The Welch Group’s Assisted Living Communities along the Massachusetts South Shore are launching a new online program designed to keep residents in touch with what matters most to them.
With the implementation of Connected Living technology, residents at Allerton House Assisted Living Communities in Duxbury, Hingham, Marshfield, Quincy and Weymouth can choose how to stay connected. The technology facilitates interaction through email, social networking, photo-sharing, online classes, brain-healthy games, music and more.
Whether it’s staying connected with family, making new friends, reaching out to former colleagues or keeping up-to-date on current events, being in touch with the world is associated with better physical and mental health for older adults. Designed specifically for seniors, the program features easy-to-use navigational tools. Residents can create their own private, secure accounts and select the interactive activity of their choice.
“Staying active, engaged and socially connected is essential to good health and happiness,” says Paul Casale, Jr., executive director of Allerton House at Central Park in Weymouth, MA. Further, he says, “With the addition of Connected Living, our residents are gaining access to a whole host of new opportunities.” The Allerton House Communities also emphasize activities and events that are engaging, stimulating and fun. Heading into the summer months, the Allerton House Assisted Living Communities have scheduled open houses, courtyard concerts and barbecues.
