In a recent blog post, I shared the results of an interesting study out of Washington State University that found that where you live can influence your lifespan. It looked at people’s gender, race, and education level, as well as locales’ walkability, socioeconomics, and working-age population and tied it to the number of centenarians in that location. The results of the study were rather surprising. To learn more about the results of this study among others, click the link above.
At Wesley Glen Retirement Community, there is a variety of opportunities for residents to explore and find where their passions lie. And, if there is something that may not be on the regular calendar of activities that sparks interest, residents are encouraged and supported in creating their own activities, groups, or in this case, committee. What started years ago as some residents with an interest in various aspects of the natural environment that surrounds Wesley Glen, has turned into an organized, structured, and innovative resident Nature Committee – one that we are fortunate to have.
