The history of Activities is an ever changing process.  What was accepted 10 years ago is not what our seniors are wanting.  Today's seniors are younger and want more activities to stimulate their leisure time.

Dear Newbie,

 

I agree with you regarding younger seniors wanting more stimulating activities for their leisure time.  What specific activities do they ask for or engage in most often in your facility/community?

 

The younger residents at my facility could still drive and were very independent, so they mostly planned their own outings, but were open to us providing community resources for free or inexpensive exercise classes for seniors.

 

I appreciate any activity ideas you can give me for my active and independent seniors!

Thanks,

Lynn D.
