"Keeping the mind active, that is the key."
Activities that give your senior a "workout for their brain" can help in many ways. Here are a few suggestions:
Book Club – Pick out a book that you and your want to read. Once a week, spend some quality time discussing portions of the book.
Painting – Whether your senior is an accomplished artist or a total amateur, take them someplace nice, a park, buildings, nature, and let them paint or draw to their content. Make sure they sign it and date it for a life time memory.
Journals – Although sometimes private, journals can be a great way for a week, ask your senior to share something they feel comfortable sharing and discuss it. Ask questions, what a great way to understand your senior and get to know them at the same time.
These are only three suggestions. There are several more activities out there for all ages to enjoy. What are some of your favorites? Share by commenting below!
