Research tells us that companionship helps us live longer: good conversation keeps the mind sharp, and social connections contribute to good health. This week, we sought both good conversation and social connection with retirees at Perrysburg Commons. Gathering in the common area to play board games, our real intent was to enjoy casual conversation and swap stories and life experiences with people who’ve already walked a longer journey.
Spending time with the elderly can be very rewarding. We can always gain wisdom from others’ experiences, and we’re never too old to learn something new!
