Community Activities and Seniors Plans and Ideas

from:

If you are a senior citizen, there are a lot of things in store for you. If you live with or work with seniors, what do you know about community activities and seniors? You may not be fully aware of all the many different things there are to do and all the different responsibilities as well as how busy their day can be when filled with activities.

Community activities are a great way to relieve boredom, have social activity, challenge the mind and to stay physically active. But what kind of activities should you participate in?

When it comes to community activities and seniors, the events are usually posted on a community bulletin board and/or flyers sent out to all residents. Some examples of community activities and seniors are:

* Monthly birthday parties to which all residents are invited. Families and friends may be invited to participate. There may be birthday parties, wedding celebrations and baby showers for the family members of residents of a community as well.

* Celebrations of various holidays. Holidays are particularly difficult times for those away from their own homes, families, and friends. Valentine's Day, Halloween, Christmas, Hannukah, Easter, and Memorial Day are a few examples. This will keep depression, sadness and boredom from setting in for many people who may be away from their friends and family.

* Games- Great for one-to-one relationships and group activity. Bingo is a favorite for many, but bridge, chess, and other games for smaller groups usually are available.

* Outdoor activities include gardening, cookouts, or just enjoying time in the sun alone or with a friend.


* Trips and tours to community events. Some homes have a special resident fund from the sale of arts and crafts made and sold by the residents to finance transportation rentals and ticket purchases.

* Exercise fun and physical fitness. Community leaders often volunteer to lead yoga or other exercise sessions. Even wheelchair-bound residents of the community can participate.

* Arts and crafts programs separate from occupational therapy frequently are offered by the activities coordinator.
Community activities and seniors might also participate in various religious activities depending on the religion. Or they might meet in the community after a church time or some other specific meeting time and place. Community activities are very important to seniors. Most find it both fun and healthy to have people around them and to have something planned in their schedule to do. It gives them people to see and talk to and something useful to do.
