Helping Seniors Stay Engaged While At Home
Even as parts of the US start to relax stay-at-home orders, our senior loved ones will still be under very restrictive rules for their own safety. We may not be able to visit with them right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t send along some things to help keep their minds sharp during these trying times.
Puzzles & Games. In this you want activities which are familiar or simple to pick up. Jigsaw puzzles, old school board games, even chess or checkers sets.
Music. Many of us take music for granted. But for our senior loved ones, it can be very difficult to get their music nowadays. Something like the smpl Music Player & Radio could be a great way to let them have their music again without needing someone else to put it on for them. You can put their music on a USB drive and it will play with the touch of a button.
Hobbies. Anything that can keep them occupied and engaged safely. Knitting. Crocheting. Painting. Photography. Model building. Film study. All of these – and more – can be done in residential facilities using products you can readily have shipped to them.
Keeping the mind active is incredibly important for seniors, and we will all have to learn to encourage that activity remotely.
