Depression is a serious concern in the aging community, especially among those with other health issues. According to the CDC, as little as 1% of seniors suffer from major depression, but that rises to as many as 13.5% in those who require care. Senior Living Facilities, such as Woodland Borden Care, fight an ongoing battle against Depression among their residents.
Studies have shown that spending time outdoors, even simply sitting passively in a natural environment can improve physical health and overall well-being (Washington Post).
That is why one of the main goals at Woodland Borden Care is to help residents spend as much time outdoors as possible. In order to do this, they provide a wonderful outdoor area for residents, featuring grapevines, citrus trees, and an extensive garden. This not only supplies delicious, healthy produce for the home but also allows ample opportunity to catch some SoCal sun rays and fresh air. They also have a nice patio area for relaxing and socializing.
The owners and caregivers of Woodland Borden Care say that they’ve noticed their efforts pay off. It really helps battle depression and keeps their residents going.
