After Our Life’s Adventure
Isn’t home just the most comfortable place on Earth? It’s true for everyone and is especially true for seniors who are done with experiencing everything the world has to offer outside. All the adventure, the thrill, and excitement get a little tiring as you grow old. After a while, they are going to need to spend some time at home, to reconnect with their family and themselves. Some will need to rest as they may be getting a bit weaker as they advance in age. At this stage, they will need their family more than ever. They are going to want to spend their time with their grandchildren and take part in activities that come with April Fools Day, for example. It’s a day where everyone could be a little extra goofy, extra lively, and funny. Keeping their house lively would do them a lot of good, emotionally, and physically as well, getting them to laugh, moving around, help them ward off certain feelings of depression and isolation as they age. Baking, gardening, and even tidying up around the house does a lot of good and can bring in more peace for them than you could imagine.
Staying at home is actually clinically better for seniors who may be experiencing certain illnesses. There has been a comparison between in-home care and hospitalization, and a study had already claimed that overall, in-home care is better for seniors, financially and physically, as they may be subjected to various infections at the hospital. And because they are back at home, they can focus more on taking care of themselves, never mind the environmental stresses of day to day hustle. You may be staying with your senior from time to time, and trying some of these activities might help them relax, and occupy their spare time.
Here are some activities that they can try:
- Basic Yoga, Tai Chi, or even assist them with basic stretches
- Playing with animals
- Play with kids
- Learning new recipes and cooking styles
- Home Decorating
- Brain games
- Collect succulents/keep house plants
Any activity that will keep them calm and mellow will do. The goal is to keep them relaxed and collected so they can ‘center’ themselves, and keep all aspects of their health intact. They might need help from time to time, and that is okay and completely normal. In turn, you have to make them feel like they are not a burden, and that you would be there every step of the way. But, as you try to maintain a career yourself, you might forget to do certain activities with them sometimes. As you well know, it is highly encouraged that your seniors engage in physical activities.
