Seniors can still do fun things too!
It is true that our physical and mental abilities change as we get older. But this doesn’t mean that we have to put an end to the lively actions of life. Apart from the activities of daily living (ADL’s), there are fun activities for senior citizens that can boost physical and mental functions.
Recreation and Activities for Senior citizens
There are several entertaining activities that can keep our elderly loved ones busy and entertained. Try these things as we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite senior citizen activities for you below.
- Moderate Exercise
- Board Games & Crossword Puzzles and the likes
- Journal Writing
- Story Telling
- Book Reading
It’s all about learning something new.
Exercising the body and mind even when aging happens is a way of taking care of your aging loved ones while still letting them see the beauty in life. Trying new hobbies and fun activities are productive, engaging ways for our elderly loved ones to pass the time rather than just watching television or relying merely on their caregivers for entertainment.
Furthermore, the best way to keep seniors active and lively on a daily basis is to encourage their hobbies and interests and try new things together as often as possible. Not only will it boost their mental and physical abilities, it’s also a way to bond with them and spend quality times.
