Fun Activities for Seniors

During hot weather, it is best for elders to stay indoors or not stay out too long. It is important, especially for those elders who have a health condition that is aggravated by the heat, to stay indoors or monitor their temperature. Therefore, the caregivers at CLS have curated a list of fun activities for seniors and caregivers.

Indoor Activities

Indoor activities are your best bet during the hot days or even the snowed in days. You are able to control the temperature indoors. Here is a list of some activities your loved one and caregiver can do:

  • Painting
  • Host education guests
  • Book club meetings
  • Jigsaw puzzles
  • Sodoku
  • Board games: Monopoly or Life
  • Bird watch through the window after installing a bird feeder
  • Crafts
  • Movies
  • Cooking: You can bake home made cookies, any type of dessert or even make a dish from a recipe you’ve never tried before

Outdoor Activities

You don’t necessarily have to limit yourselves to indoor activities. There are some activities that can be done in the early morning before the temperature rises or before the sun sets. It is also important to monitor how they are feeling to make sure their health conditions do not worsen. Here is a list of outdoor activities that your loved one can do in moderation:

  • Gardening
  • Walking
  • Golfing
  • Swimming

There are many activities that your elderly loved one could do to help them beat their boredom. If you are too busy to assist your loved one with such activities, you could always consider hiring an in home caregiver!
