A complete program of fitness, nutrition and wellness designed
specifically for those intellectual and developmental disabilities
and effective for all.
We are living in a time of extreme technological connectivity, yet the prevalence of people feeling lonely continues to rise. Those with intellectual disabilities tend to report a higher incidence of feeling lonely or socially isolated than their peers without disabilities.
LONELINESS HAS HEALTH IMPLICATIONS. A recent study featured in the New York Times showed loneliness is associated with a reduced lifespan similar to someone who smokes. Loneliness is also linked to greater risk of heart disease, dementia, anxiety and depression.
