Being social over 50 can help you live longer!

Did you know there are proven health benefits to being socially active as we get older? In fact, research has shown that people who are socially connected even live longer! And if that’s not reason enough, social interaction can also lower your blood pressure, reduce symptoms of depression and decrease the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.


When it comes to social activities, residents of Nature’s Edge Buderim over 50’s lifestyle community are spoilt for choice. Set amid beautifully landscaped gardens, with a stunning rainforest backdrop and tranquil walkways, Nature’s Edge Buderim not only provides a safe and inclusive neighbourhood feel, it also boasts a lively social calendar, with endless opportunities to connect with like-minded people and develop new friendships.


Party with friends at the state-of-the-art Leisure Centre, enjoy a sundown drink on the deck, pop in to the library where you can relax, soak up the rainforest views and meet up for a coffee. There’s even a men’s shed for the gents to connect and channel their inner handy man.


Feeling energetic? Grab a friend and swim laps at the indoor heated 20-metre swimming pool or enjoy a workout at the well-equipped gymnasium.


If you still have time on your social calendar after all that, you can join a yoga session, play a game of lawn bowls or kick your heels up at a line-dancing class. There’s so much to do, the only problem will be fitting it all in.


Life over 50 is fun. Why not live on the edge a little… Nature’s Edge!
