Human beings are social by nature. We rely on parents as infants and children to provide love, support and even human touch. As adults we need a shoulder to lean on – someone to laugh with and talk to. Even a pat on the back, hug or touch of the hand can make all the difference. We don’t realize how important this is, but as we age and become more homebound, these important needs often go unmet. We often hear seniors say they want to remain in their home as long as possible. This is wonderful if they can, but we can’t forget about the need for socialization and meaningful activities. Directors at East Hill are dedicated to providing amazing experiences for everyone at East Hill. We kicked things off with our monthly themed dinner “Welcome to China”.
