Caregivers Suggest Fun Christmas Activities For Your Senior To Participate In

Dec 15, 2017 by Anonymous

If you have a loved one that receives care from caregivers, they want you to know how important it is for your senior to be included and not left out. Your senior’s happiness and health are paramount and should be focused on. Seniors should never just be placed in front of the TV and left there all day. They need companionship and they need someone there they can talk to, especially around the holidays. Caregivers are able to help your loved one and provide them with the companionship they need, so this is why these services are a wonderful option for older seniors. If you are looking for some activities that your loved one can do with friends, family, or their home care providers, check out the ones below. These are all wonderful ideas that will help your loved one feel special this holiday season.

  • Knitting some holiday-themed scarves or blankets for family members
  • Making a holiday countdown calendar to Christmas day
  • Helping to wrap gifts for other members in the family and placing them under the tree
  • Baking Christmas cookies or holiday desserts
  • Helping to decorate the home that they live in or decorate the tree
  • Looking through old photos from past Christmas celebrations
  • Helping shop for the best Christmas presents for the grandkids
  • Assisting with cooking the large holiday dinner
  • Decorating gingerbread houses with the grandkids
  • Listening to Christmas music or singing some Christmas carols

Caregivers want you to know that keeping your loved one mentally sharp is easy to do by simply incorporating them into your activities and fun. Seniors often struggle to remain social with others, but if you provide them with the comfort and love they need, they will engage in the activities you have planned.
