A support system provides a social network, helps improve a loved one’s health, and can even extend life compared to older adults without any friends or family. A family support system is beneficial.

Choosing your support system is important. Learn more about steps to take to continue to live independently. Create your social support system by a) engaging with people who acknowledge your goals, dreams, passions – whatever it is you may have and have expressed similar interests; b) finding people who genuinely have your best interests at heart; and c) surrounding yourself with those who understand your goals.
