Daylight savings time is here and we are all looking forward to longer days and more sunlight. Everyone, regardless of age, receives health benefits from sunlight. However, there are some specific benefits particular to seniors. Some of these benefits are linked to better sleep, cardiovascular health, improved mood and stronger bones to name a few.
When we first found our home for Rosette Senior Living in Gladwyne, there were so many attributes of the home that initially struck us as special; the amount of common space, the garden area potential, the amount of accessible deck space, the split level design and much much more.
There was however one aspect of this home that we did not realize until we began renovation. Sunlight. We just spent many months in Rosette preparing and renovating this home to become a licensed personal care home in the state of Pennsylvania. While doing this, we were constantly amazed by the natural light and ridiculous brightness of the home. Even on the coldest and shortest days of winter, if the sun was out Rosette was bright and cheery.
