SENIOR LIVING GUIDE | COMMUNITY Try Hosting ‘Family’ Dinners Food is often the heart of any community. Getting together to break bread allows for special time to form new relationships and nurture continuing bonds. This can be especially rewarding for seniors, who are at highest risk for eating alone. Hosting “family” dinners every week is a great way to not only chase away feelings of loneliness, but also beef up your recipe arsenal. SHARE MEALS Get your friends and neighbors together and begin hosting family dinners. You can decide to host every week, or you could set up a rotation so that others have the opportunity to host. You might even find that a group of you meet every week in the summer and hit the farmer’s markets together. SWAP RECIPES Hosting family dinners among your community also introduces you to new types of meals. Each week the dinner host could write out the recipes for each dish in the meal for guests to take home. You can plan menus in advance and post them in a communal area (or email them out) to boost excitement. Just be sure to be mindful of any allergies guests may have, and while not a requirement, it is thoughtful to avoid ingredients toward which any your “family” has strong aversions. FLEX YOUR ‘IRON CHEF’ MUSCLES If you enjoy a little friendly competition, you might find that introducing some “Iron Chef” magic into your family dinners will add a new level of merriment among guests. Maybe once a month — after your weekly dinners have been well established — your group could organize a competition. Don’t be intimidated by odd ingredients. You could pick a well-known and well-liked dish, such as chili or spaghetti, and choose two members of your group for a cook-off. By choosing only two, you keep the amount of food limited, ensuring none is wasted. © ADOBE STOCK Hosting “family” dinners every week is a great way to not only chase away feelings of loneliness, but also beef up your recipe arsenal.

SENIOR LIVING GUIDE | VOLUNTEERING Benefits of Volunteering Volunteering can be one of the most rewarding experiences for seniors. While monetary donations are always appreciated by organizations, often what is needed most is time. Not only is it enjoyable, but giving of one’s time has many physical, mental and psychological advantages. Strengthens Physical Health Physical activity and exercise are essential components in positive health. Many volunteer opportunities offer a physically active component to them — everything from stuffing envelopes to staffing events. Maintaining a healthy fitness level is essential especially for seniors to help keep your immune system strong and prevent diseases. Strengthens Psychological Health Volunteering has been shown to diminish feelings of isolation and prevent depression. Volunteering provides seniors a reason for leaving their homes — an activity many older generations resist doing for a number of reasons. One of the most rewarding aspects of volunteering is meeting new people and forming new relationships. You never know who you might meet and who you might help. Strengthens Mental Health Volunteering works to keep your brain active, which is just as important as physical activity. The National Institute on Aging reports that participating in meaningful activities, and nurturing feelings of productivity, lowers the risk of dementia, among other health problems. Enriches Your Time People who volunteer often feel more confident and hold a higher self-worth because they feel they contribute value to their broader community, according to a study out of Wharton College. No matter what you choose to devote your time to, the important aspects to keep in mind are to find events and organizations that suit your schedule, and help a cause you feel passionate about. Both of these factors will affect your commitment to volunteering, and your impressions of volunteering as a whole. Have Your Taxes Done by Capstone For Free*! *For household incomes $54,000 or less.
