SMU study: Seniors who live nearby green spaces and parks feel a stronger sense of wellbeing

A new study by the SMU Centre for Research on Successful Ageing (ROSA) found that living close to parks, green spaces or sports fields is beneficial for the body, mind and soul of the elderly. It also noted that seniors who frequently participate in social activities have a stronger sense of social well-being. ROSA suggested that further studies into the impact of the presence of different types of community facilities on social well-being could add value to policymaking.
