Here at the Courtyard, we believe that an active lifestyle is essential to maintaining both mental health, and overall happiness. Participation in meaningful activities has been shown to buffer against depression, a common risk in senior care living. So does exercise, which improves mobility and helps overall health. Engaging activities offer cognitive and social stimulation and lessen feelings of loneliness.
