Activities for Seniors in Nursing Homes or Assisted Living Homes

Senior citizens that find themselves in nursing homes or even in one of those assisted living facilities can at times can fall victim to boredom and become apathetic due to it. If they are not kept active it is had to stay excited about anything and it will not be of any help in trying to help their minds to stay young for a longer period of time.

A lot of times in these facilities the people who work there are overworked and simply don't have time to come up with things for their residents to do. If you would like to help seniors have more active lives, get in touch with one of these facilities and see if you could volunteer to do some work with their seniors.

Once you find a place that will allow you to work with their seniors there are a variety of different things that you might be able to do to help keep the seniors more active and less bored with their lives. One thing you might consider doing is help them start up a newsletter for their nursing home or assisted living facility.

You might be surprised at how many seniors are talented writers and poets and you can use those talents to have them write news articles, fiction articles as well as poetry that could be added to the newsletter. This will let them share their talents with others and will keep their minds active and it will give them also a reason to pay more attention to what's going on around them since they are going to want to be able to write interesting pieces for the newsletter.

Another good idea to try and do is to set up an arts and crafts show. Check with your seniors with regards to the kinds of crafts they like to do and have done and take those talents and let them create a variety of different items. Once they have done this you might see if the nursing home or facility will allow you to open up the arts and crafts show to the public.

This way a variety of different people will have the opportunity to purchase these handmade items. It will also help these seniors with any self-esteem issues they might have. It will make them feel important and needed again.

Consider setting up different kinds of exercise groups all varying in levels of complexity because you want to be able to include even those that might be restricted to a wheelchair. You could have yoga, simple stretching exercises, take them to community pools where they can get some aquatic exercise, whatever you can think of that's going to help them benefit from the movement of the exercises.

If there is a special event coming to town like the fair, or a special speaker, consider taking a group out to one of these events. Even take them to your local Saturday Market or out to a park as a group activity. Getting them involved with doing things outside of the facility is going to go a long way in helping them feel better about themselves and feel healthier.
