Healthy Aging:  What Role Does Socialization Play?

Socialization plays a large role in maintaining quality of life as one ages.  Research has shown that older adults, who have strong social networks, seem to have a higher quality of life, live longer and are healthier compared to those with little social support.  Our center enables aging adults to remain active and engaged within a compassionate and caring community of peers and professionals.

HOURS:  Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday’s from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
