The Perks of Being
a Social Senior
Did you know that
having a variety
of positive social
interactions not
only increases your
emotional wellbeing,
but can also contribute
to your physical
wellness? That’s because
social interaction can
boost self-esteem, which
gives you a more positive
outlook on life. Doctors
have found that people
who have a positive outlook
on life tend to fight diseases
better than people who don’t.
The bottom line? Meaningful
interactions with others enhance
your quality of life (and maybe
even add years to it), making
you feel better and giving you
a reason to rise and shine each
day. Take advantage “of these
many opportunities to enjoy
the company of others.

Being Social in
Your Community
There’s nothing more enjoyable
than meeting new people.
Find those in your community
with whom you share a special
interest, and get social!
Join a Community Group –
Quilting circles, book clubs,
fishing trips etc. Look for
opportunities and more in your
community to make new and
lasting connections.
Volunteer – You have so many
skills to offer. What better way
to use them than to contribute
to a charity of your choice?
You can find all kinds of
organizations to support either
online or in your community.
Do you have a green thumb?
Help plan a community garden.
Do you have the fastest needles
in east? Grab some friends and
knit hats for cancer patients.
There’s so much you can
accomplish when you work
together as a community.
Social Gatherings on Campus
We offer many opportunities
for you to mix and mingle on
campus. Here are a few activities
to look for when you want to
make campus connections.
Happy Hour – Gather with
friends, family members and
staff every Friday afternoon
to enjoy great snacks and even
better company.

Greetings,
Forest Park
Health Campus ended the year with great success by raising money to give back
to those in need. Our campus
lives by a standard called “The
Customer Service Difference,”
and adhering to this standard
has given rise to a special culture,
where we not only focus on taking
great care of our customers, but
we also focus on giving back to
the community as well. We’d like
to take this opportunity to thank
those of you who supported our
2014 Holiday Charity Fundraising efforts. We are pleased to
announce that our campus raised
approx. $3000 to benefit a local
charity. The winners of the raffle
drawing include:
• 40 inch TV- Christina
Vardaman
• Keurig Mini Brewer Diana Reeg
• Dyson Vacuum Shannon Morgan
• Samsung Tablet- Jean Varner
We appreciate your kindness
and generosity!
Yours in service,
Jessica Price
