Sunshine for Seniors

Briton House, a privately-owned retirement home in Toronto Canada has come up with a new way for their residents to get some Florida sunshine in the winter without even leaving their community.  Preliminary research shows that exposure to sunshine can help to reduce effects of dementia as well as general depression, seasonal affectiveness disorder (SAD) and the “sun-downing” effect.  Naturally, there are also socialization benefits of bringing residents together for conversation.  Add a tiki bar and you’ve got a new revenue stream too!
