Summer is a time for warm weather, vacation, and endless fun. But it might be equally challenging to determine safe and fun activities for seniors. Here we have a list of senior-friendly activities for this summer to ensure your loved ones make the most of it. However, make sure to keep seniors hydrated and use sunscreen before going out in the sun.
Swimming: Soft water-based activities are helpful for seniors to increase bone density and muscle mass, help with flexibility and reduce pain.
Gardening: Gardening can be the best choice to go out, get sun, and get your hands dirty. It also reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia among seniors.
Reading a book: Reading a book can help seniors reduce stress, enhance sleep, and delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Crafting: Art and craft is fun to activate the senses and boost the mind. Help your loved ones to make a painting or do knitting, and see how it can trigger positive memories.
Playing Games: Board games, cards, and putting puzzles together can be a fun activities that can also help seniors socialize.
