JERSEY CITY, N.J., April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Providing an opportunity for seniors to get out of the house, socialize with others, and enjoy themselves is essential to helping them maintain a healthy lifestyle and live life to the fullest. Unfortunately, as seniors age, the lack of socialization comes into play.
The two most pressing obstructions seniors are met with when trying to maintain a healthy social life, are availability and accessibility. AngelaCARES Inc. has and continues to challenge these obstructions by hosting our 8th Annual Senior Citizen Prom (free to Hudson County Seniors) to take place at Saint Peter's University Mac Mahon Student Union Building, 47 Glenwood Avenue, Jersey City, NJ, Friday, May 24, 2019 from 6:00 pm until 10:00 pm.
The world we live in today provides us with various ways to extend our lives, from the food we eat, to the growth of science. They say 60 is the new 50 and humans are living longer than they used to.
Rush University Medical Center states: "Social activity has long been recognized as an essential component of healthy aging, but now we have strong evidence that it is also related to better everyday functioning and less disability in old age," said lead researcher Bryan James, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the epidemiology of aging and dementia in the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center. "The findings are exciting because social activity is potentially a risk factor that can be modified to help older adults avoid the burdens of disability."
