Social & Educational Activities
According to a study published in the British Medical Journal, productive and socially active people in the latter stages of life live significantly longer than those who are not involved in such activities. More than 2,700 Americans age 65 and older were involved in the study, which showed that social activity can contribute as much to the prolonging of life as physical fitness.
As the body and the brain begin to decline, games, puzzles, crafts & hobbies can help seniors exercise their cognitive ability, motor skills & reduce depression.
The Hudson Senior Center offers many activities offering social, emotional and educational benefits. All activities take place at the Senior Center unless otherwise noted.
