List of Simple things to do with your senior loved ones at home

Our aging senior friends often get bored and lose their charming self-personality. We are inclined towards learning new things, adventures, hiking, and socializing; but due to the limited mobility of our aging loved ones, they are constricted to home.

Nonetheless, they deserve a healthy and spirited life indoors or not.

Check out some of the most creative, productive, and entertaining things you can do with your loved ones.

GARDENING

Seeing a seed grow into a plant is a delicate pleasure. Gardening will strengthen your relationship with your loved one as you spend time in the greenery and sunlight.

You can grow vegetables and fruits for cooking food or flowers and decorative plants for the feast of your eyes.

GET INNOVATIVE

We have an artistic side to ourselves and now maybe is the perfect time to explore it. Try painting, crafting, or basic knitting with your loved one. If you can play an instrument ask them if they are interested in playing too. Teach them, learn from them, and especially let them discover all the things they couldn’t do before.

BRAIN GAMES

Games like puzzles, memory games, chess, sudoku, crosswords and many more will keep our senior friends’ mind fresh, young, and vibrant. According to a study conducted in November 2016 international psychogeriatrics, brain games improve thinking skills, short-term memory, decision-making skills which tend to weaken with age. 

COOKING

Spending time with your loved one while doing a simple chore as cooking is the best way to be productive and make delicious conversations at the same time.

Try a new recipe or bake cake or cookies. This will stimulate their spirit, make them feel independent, and bring a missing piece of excitement in their life.

SWAY AND SING

Music is the language of emotions and for our evergreen heart owners, music can do unimaginable things.

Music can stimulate happiness, feelings, and a shy gentle swaying. To make your loved one’s day memorable, play their favorite song, try to dance with them if possible. Music triggers memories of valuable moments and the ones they loved.

LOVE YOURSELF

Seniors have invested so many years in their career, education, and family. It’s time for our elder friends to take some time for themselves.

Give them a manicure, pedicure, hair coloring, styling, massages, and spa at home. Self-care is a necessity. Let them feel beautiful, cared, and loved.

WATCH WEB-SERIES, MOVIES, SHOWS

The best break from a boring daily routine would be watching a movie you wanted to watch for days. A simple fort of cushions, home-cooked popcorn, and a hand to hold on to a horror scene is all you need!
