Socially active seniors are happier and healthier, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.
Harvard researchers led by investigator Karen Ertel conducted a massive study of some 17,000 elderly volunteers and concluded that those “who were most socially integrated had memory decline of less than half the rate compared with those who were the least socially integrated.”
AMAC says the Harvard study and others that have been undertaken over the years proves the benefits of an active social life as we grow older. The association encourages elderly loners to get out and about more in their golden years; to meet old friends and make new friends.
