How to Plan and Execute a Successful and Fun Dance and Dinner Party for Seniors

Even as people get older, they have the desire to be able to enjoy themselves and seniors who aren't given that opportunity are going to age faster while those who do get to do things that are fun for them have a better shot to stay younger for a longer period of time. If you happen to work or volunteer at a nursing home or an assisted living facility you might want to get together with others that work there and try to think of fun things for your seniors to do. One of those things could be to plan a dinner and dance event for them. The dance doesn't even have to located at one of these facilities it could be put on by a church or a community center.

Having a dinner and dance event gives them a chance to get together as a group to socialize and have some fun. Depending upon where the location is and who your seniors are will help you plan for the event better. If it's going to be put on by your church or a community center this could be an opportunity for them to meet new people or run into old friends they haven't seen for awhile. A great thing to do when you plan one of these is to make sure that it has some sort of theme and revolves around the average group of the people predicted to attend.

If the event that you plan is going to be during Christmas, you already have your theme taken care of, however; you can change it up a bit and maybe make the theme one that deals with the Twelve Days of Christmas. If it's in the summer time you could have the the dinner and dance include a BBQ. Or you could make it a formal setting where the guests are encouraged to wear some sort of formal wear.

A really popular theme for all ages, but is especially good for seniors because it helps them with their memory skills and reasoning skills is by putting on a Murder Mystery Who Done It dinner and dance. Not only will they enjoy the mystery and the acting that will be put on, the actors can get them involved and this will help them not only feel like they are part of everything that's going on but it will simply be a lot of fun for them. When you put on one of these types of themes though, the group of people invited needs to be smaller than with other themes. You can write the mystery yourself or you can buy instructions for putting on this kind of event. Other themes could be an old Hollywood theme, maybe a Vegas Night or even the days of the flappers during the Roaring 20s.

You can also consider the average age of the people coming and then have the them revolve around the era that they might have graduated from high school and have a 40s, 50s or 60s them for the dinner and dance. Make sure to include plenty of music from the era that you choose and even try to convince those who are coming to wear clothes from that particular time period. Make sure the decorations fit the era if it's the 50s do a whole big thing about rock and roll and if it's the 60s go all psychedelic on them and then of course center on the big band era if it's the 40s.

When you sit down to plan the actual dinner you are going to have to make sure that you take into account any dietary needs that are special when you put together the menu. Make sure that you have desserts that are OK for diabetics to eat, and that the main course is low in salt as well as cholesterol, because seniors are usually watching what they eat. Make sure that you also have vegetarian options as well because there also may be vegetarians attending as well. You should also include decaf coffee along with regular and non-alcoholic beverages a long with alcoholic ones for those who don't like to drink and can't have caffene.
