What can seniors do for fun at home_

Do you spend a lot of time with an older family member? What do you do together for fun? Fun is an important part of retirement living, because it’s beneficial for physical and mental health. Here are some suggestions for things seniors can do for fun at home.

  • Pick themes for certain days. This may sound like a silly idea, but you can get really creative with a theme day. Maybe you’ll pick a national “holiday” like chocolate chip cookie day and plan a cookie party, or maybe you’ll dress in masks and beads for Mardi Gras. It doesn’t matter what you choose for a theme, it just matters that you have fun together.
  • Go through old photos together. Talk about the stories behind the images, even if you’ve heard the stories thousands of times. You never know when you might hear something new!
  • Play together. Board games, card games, and word puzzles are fun and easy, and picture puzzles are something that can keep you busy for a long time.
  • Cook together. Everyone can relate to food, and it really brings people together. Making old family recipes together can be a special treat because it’s both fun and meaningful. Maybe you can even incorporate it into one of your theme days!
  • Pursue a hobby. Is there something you’ve both always wanted to learn to do? It may be the perfect time to give it a try. If you like it, you may discover a new passion, and if not, you can always drop it and choose something else.

If the time comes for your senior to move to a new place, active adult communities provide plenty of fun. From amenities like a fitness center, pool, and on-site dining to scheduled outings, events, and classes, your senior will never lack for something to do. What’s more, living in senior living apartments, older adults are surrounded by like-minded peers, so they have an instant community of people with whom they can form lasting friendships. Whether they’re taking a class together, going out on the town, or just taking a walk on a walking trail, you can be sure that your senior is living life to the fullest and having plenty of fun.
