Add These Fun Activities to Your Idea File for Seniors | Qualicare Calgary

As the summer ends, a new season begins. Are you looking for new ways to add some fall fun to your days?

Our team of in-home care providers at Qualicare Calgary want to offer some ideas of activities you can do with your loved one this fall.

Come One, Come All!

Did you know that older adults who have stronger relationships with friends and family experience more happiness and enhanced well-being as they age?

Therefore, when thinking of different fun activities for the fall, consider making them a group event.

First, consider playing a storytelling game. In this game, you have one person start a story, and everyone else must add pieces to the story to come up with a beginning, middle and end.

For instance, one person can come up with the first idea, then the next person continues for a few minutes, only to pass the rest of the story on to the next person, and so on and so forth.

Not only does this have older people working with others, but it also helps to improve their cognitive function while boosting creativity.

Second, who doesnt love to dance? While dancing is a great form of exercise, it is also an activity that can bring a lot of laughter and joy to the people participating.

And while having a freestyle dance party can be fun, it is never too late to learn a new dance. Therefore, consider adding a new dance to the mix every week or month. From the waltz to the rumba, your loved ones will be tango-ing both at the dance and at home this season!

Finally, speaking of learning something new, consider giving a new hobby a try. Its never too late to learn something new, whether its how to play a musical instrument or how to speak another language.
