Kiwanis November 18 Meeting Program: Patricia Swan, Executive Director of the Lantern Hill CCRC in New Providence presented Opening a New Chapter of Life.
Patricia’s talk was about Opening a New Chapter of Life. Most people are reluctant to leave their house and move into a residential community because of the perceived loss they will experience. However, evidence shows that those courageous seniors who move to a CCRC experience many benefits, including improved fitness, nutrition, risk (falling) avoidance and social and spirituality benefits.
Her talk ended with a chart showing the really good news that seniors feel the best of their lives as they age and living in a CCRC enhances that experience. After an active question and answer session, the audience applauded this opportunity to learn more about Continuing Care Retirement Communities.
