Springhill Care Group | Socialization: important for Seniors - Springhill Group Florida... - 1 views

  •  
    Getting older could sometimes be a bit frustrating that is why socialization is very important to have socialization for seniors. As much as it is important to everyone it is as important twofold for the elderly. These may come a bit hard to do when we were younger as we were too busy bringing home the bacon and at the same time taking care of the family. As we get older, as life is slowly taking paces as if everything is slowing down including time literally, seniors now has all the time to socialize but the thing now is there is no much of someone to socialize with. As this point in time many friends may have been lost along the way and are no longer part of your long-term friendships.



    It will be great if you have friends from the past that you still have contact with and remained friends up to the golden age. It will be best for both sides to keep in touch, calling once in a while is a good idea and meeting at least once a month will do great on both parts too. It will also help if you invite new people, it will be more exciting still having to meet new friends and don't worry if you think that you have nothing to do. There will always be lots to do, such as going to a museum, to a park, movies perhaps or stay home eat and talk about books you have read, share stories and experiences. Do not frustrate yourself because possibilities are endless and new relationships as well.



    If unfortunately this cannot be done anymore, don't worry, there are senior centers that offer socialization. Bingo may sound old and actually a traditional game to play but still fun and popular up to this day. Everyone can still enjoy it. Like earlier there are endless of possibilities, everyone at any age can still enjoy shopping maybe do it once in a while. To add excitement and feel like young again, maybe you can try to choose to make it a girls' night out or a boys' night out so you can plan an afternoon at your favorite restaurant, then shopping afterwards.

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Kicking off a two-day Sunshine State barnstorm Saturday, President Barack Obama tapped into key parts of what he hopes will be a winning Florida coalition similar to but larger than the one he assembled in 2008.
    At stops in Seminole and Kissimmee, Fla., the president, who won the Sunshine State by just 50.9 percent in 2008, targeted the votes of senior citizens, warning that their Medicare benefits would be harmed by a plan put forward by his Republican opponents Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Kicking off a two-day Sunshine State barnstorm Saturday, President Barack Obama tapped into key parts of what he hopes will be a winning Florida coalition similar to but larger than the one he assembled in 2008.
    At stops in Seminole and Kissimmee, Fla., the president, who won the Sunshine State by just 50.9 percent in 2008, targeted the votes of senior citizens, warning that their Medicare benefits would be harmed by a plan put forward by his Republican opponents Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
    "I want you to know, AARP, I would never turn Medicare into a voucher," Obama said at a civic center here, making an explicit play for members of the 50-and-up club. "I believe no American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies."

    In USA TODAY's article "The underlying duel of 2012: Seniors vs. Millennials,"
    GOP volunteer Immo Sulyok is quoted saying about Election Day: "I'll be there,
    or I'll be dead." As will I, but my vote will be for President Obama ("A defining
    gap: Seniors for Romney, Millennials for Obama")
    I believe that our major concern should be educating our young. It is
    unbelievably arrogant for seniors like me to worry about only our welfare,
    finances and health. We had our day in the sun. The future generation is being
    short-changed by cuts in education spending and the increasing cost of higher
    education. We are witnessing the dumbing-down of America.
    There is also so much misinformation floating around about the Affordable Care
    Act and so much we mere citizens do not understand. Many rely on radio or TV
    talk-show hosts to teach us, and unfortunately, the hosts "teach" their opinions.
    Perhaps we should still think for ourselves.

    Older voters remember
    There is a different sense of history that divides Millennials and those 65 and
    older. Older voters remember the Cuban missile crisis, the Cold War and the hot
    Korean War and Vietnam conflict.
    Seniors served and sacrificed in Korea and Vietnam to defend the free world
    against communism. They have seen what communism wrought in Eastern
    Europe and Asia.
    This brave generation will vote in droves for Mitt Romney to prevent President
    Obama from transforming a free America into a socialist or communist one.

    Elderly rely on entitlements
    The great majority of older Americans are expected to vote for Mitt Romney,
    the Republican nominee for president, in the upcoming election. Ironically,
    most of these senior citizens depend heavily on Social Security and Medicare for
    survival. Both of these programs were enacted by Democratic presidents and
    Congresses controlled by Democrats! What are these seniors thinking?
