Designing Communities for Real Connections
In today’s tech-obsessed world, there is a sense that we are deeply connected with a global community 24/7. While we can watch the world like a spectator and feel in the know—depression, anxiety and loneliness seem to be at an all-time high. This is especially true for older adults.
This issue is permeating our older adult population with a significant impact on health and vitality.
Your community can be a solution to this problem, but is it? With the thoughtful combination of well-designed spaces and enticing programming, you can bring people together in real life (IRL) to feel a sense of camaraderie and companionship—the true connectivity we all crave and that is vital to our health and well-being
