The idea that social connections are an integral part of a senior's well-being is nothing new. Most people are aware of the positive physical, mental, and emotional benefits of staying social, especially for our seniors. Where the difficulty lies is doing this. So what social opportunities are there for seniors in independent living communities in Red Deer? Let’s look at a few.
The Golden Circle Center
The Golden Circle Center describes itself as a “vibrant hub for seniors to meet, build community and enjoy the company and support of their peers”. This center offers a wide range of activities and programs in which the Red Deer senior living community can participate. With a very low-cost membership, this is a great social opportunity for 2020.
Hamlets Event Calendar

The calendar is usually chock-full of physical activities, games, crafts, and so much more. This is a great tool to help fill up your personal calendar and remain social.
Find Volunteer Opportunities
There are many organizations and charities in Red Deer that are delighted to have seniors volunteer their time. Volunteering for one of these organizations not only contributes to the community but also allows for the opportunity to meet and interact with many new people. Consider finding a volunteer role in 2020!
Whatever your decision this New Year, make sure you continue to take advantage of the social opportunities Red Deer offers for its great senior community.
