At A-1 Home Care, we understand the importance of keeping Elderly and Senior individuals busy with daily activities. Although their physical or cognitive capabilities might be diminished, it’s always possible to simplify the activities for them to enjoy. Sometimes it’s hard to think up activities that your loved one would be interested in participating in, which is why it’s important to understand their current and past interests and rekindle their passion for it. For example, if your loved one enjoys gardening, enjoys card games, collecting things, or any other activity, think of ways to build upon their interest. If they like to play poker, teach them another card game.
This article by Emillee Seltzer of Aging Care talks about how to create meaningful activities for Elderly individuals. Although written for individuals with Alzheimer’s, the advice can be applied to all Elderly individuals.
