Happy New Year, 2021!
Services remain suspended due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. We look forward to resuming as soon as state/federal health agencies deem it safe for older adults. In the meantime, we wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy 2021!
Welcome to Meriatrics!
Meriatrics provides companionship and activity services for older adults (whether living independently, in residential/long-term care or while in temporary rehabilitative care.) We also offer group entertainment programs for 55-plus communities, assisted living centers, nursing homes, hospitals and senior organizations.
Our business model is shaped by the growing body of evidence that highlights the importance of bridging the gap between health/medical care AND social/emotional care, for improved outcomes and quality of life.
Services focus on increasing four core components: social engagement, fun and active enjoyment, new learning and enrichment, as well as multi-faceted entertainment -- to inspire a sense of joy, well-being and zest for life:
Technicolor For Life
Traditional geriatric models of the past focused primarily on the physical, medical and personal care needs of older adults. But as ongoing research shows, social, emotional and spiritual needs are just as important.
Fulfilling those critical needs is often a challenge, especially when older adults live alone, or, are isolated and vulnerable, or, feel sad and lonely.
Social connection, having fun and learning new things are not only vital for better health, positive aging and a general sense of well-being -- they make life worth living.
Meriatrics adds technicolor to life!
Quality of Life
Curiosity & Learning
Impacts of Loneliness & Isolation on Health
Loneliness, social isolation and limited cognitive stimulation come at great risk to one's health.
Benefits of Fun & Playfulness
Research also suggests that play and playfulness in later life have huge benefits, helping to improve social, emotional, psychological and cognitive functioning -- all of which are important to healthy aging overall. So, fun isn't just for kids anymore and Meriatrics is answering the call!
