Want to make new friends at Summit Pointe? Making new friends is as easy as a cup of coffee. Just follow the aroma of freshly brewed coffee — especially if it’s Monday.

Every Monday, a separate Men’s Coffee Group and Women’s Coffee Group get together at Summit Pointe in the Fireside Lounge for good conversation among neighbors. It couldn’t be easier to make new friends. Men shoot the breeze over a cup of Joe in the morning, and women can chat over coffee in the afternoon. What a great way to get out and about and catch up with neighbors and new friends. Equally important, these “coffee breaks” go a long way in helping us stay happy and healthy.

Socializing is key to good health

While it may be commonly known that being social can help you feel more connected and help you live longer, a recent study gave surprising new information.

“Older adults who interacted with people beyond their usual social circle of family and close friends were more likely to have higher levels of physical activity, greater positive moods and fewer negative feelings,” the study found. So making new friends and getting out of your comfort zone can get you moving and help put a smile on your face.

We’re big on socializing — and it all starts with a ‘coffee break’

So, the invitation is open. To make new friends at Summit Pointe, join the Men or Women’s Coffee Group every Monday, and let the friendships flow — along with a hot cup of java (and maybe a sweet snack or two)!
