The Value of Having a Leisure Activity for Seniors


Retirement may seem to be the most boring phase of one’s life for finally settling into the mundane, but senior living doesn’t have to be. Now that you are leaving the workforce world—take this time to finally get back to your hobby or find a new one that keeps you young at heart.

A hobby is a fun leisure that interests people, such as arts, music, sports, gardening, reading, collecting objects, dancing, and many more. Research shows that performing your habits makes you happy. And happiness improves your mental health and quality of life.

It doesn’t have to be enjoyed indoors. If you are in an assisted living facility in Burnsville, Minnesota, hobbies could also help you build relationships with your peers.

Other benefits include:

  • Reduces the risk of Dementia as your brain keeps working
  • Improves memory and problem-solving skills
  • Longer life expectancy

At senior care in Minnesota, we highly regard our patient’s interests with our activity programs. Cardenas Friendship Homes keep our residents participating in various recreational plans to benefit their social, mental, and physical well-being.
