Enjoy the Benefits of Together-Time for Kids and Seniors
There are many engaging activities that seniors and kids may enjoy together—from art workshops designed for creative expression to mind-stimulating games of chess. Engaging in various activities create an afternoon of fun and other numerous benefits.
A Pet’s Advantage on Physical and Mental Health
Pets have been seen to reduce anxiety and agitation, letting your loved ones feel more comfortable and at peace. Residents have also been known to become less vulnerable to heart disease and heart attacks, more engaged and alert, and so much more after spending quality time with those they love most.
Engaging in social activities help counterbalance the stress of work, and lead to happy and fulfilling lives. Social activities are beneficial for seniors in the following ways:
Build and Maintain Relationships
The human brain requires diverse stimulation. As we age, it is important to meet new people, enjoy the benefits of a wide-ranging social network, and build new relationships. These will help stimulate the seniors’ brain and keep those neurons firing, whether it is going to bingo night, joining a book club, or chatting with a home healthcare caregiver or companion.
Keep Learning New Skills
Social activities can be energetic and active, or they can be quiet and calming. No matter their age, there is always an opportunity for seniors to learn something new. They may achieve any goal they set their minds to, build their confidence, and take control of their lives.
Stimulate the Mind
All social activities offer a level of mental stimulation. Whether it’s signing up for a cooking class or playing cards with friends, each activity keeps the brain and body engaged. There are various games and activities that keep the seniors’ brain active.
Social activities may help seniors stay involved and active in the community. Moreover, being engaged in various social activities may help give them a sense of purpose, whether it’s the routine of having a schedule and a place to be, or the sense of accomplishment that comes from reaching a goal.
Improve Health and Well-Being
According to a 2012 study by Statistics Canada, older individuals who engage in regular social activities have higher self-perception and lower levels of loneliness and life dissatisfaction.
Cognitive activities help keep the seniors’ minds sharp and alert while reducing the risk or delaying the onset of age-related dementia. Their brains need mental exercise to stay active and alive. Mental exercise stimulates the brain and provides long-lasting positive effects when it comes to thinking and reasoning skills, memory, and processing speed. We are here to help residents engage in brain-boosting activities throughout the week.
Music helps take us back in time and evoke memories and feelings from the past. Simply hearing a tune you love may give comfort and happiness during times of sadness, and can even turn a bad mood around almost instantly.
Music therapy has been proven to help seniors restore and maintain their health, as well as help them reminisce memories and fight depression. Music therapy for seniors helps with:
Music may help seniors process their thoughts and maintain memories. For dementia patients, music from their childhood or young adult years has proven to be effective to obtain a positive response and involvement.
Music therapy has been proven to help older adults answer questions, speak clearer, and make decisions. It can also help dementia patients slow the deterioration of speech and language skills.
Some caregivers have difficulty managing their aging loved one’s stress and agitation. By playing the music they enjoy, seniors may be relaxed and be more at ease. Slow songs like ballads and lullabies may help prepare your loved ones for bed or deal with changes to their routines that may cause agitation.
Music can motivate seniors to move. With music comes dancing, after all. Music and dancing promote coordination and can help seniors walk. Even if your loved ones are not mobile, music can inspire them to toe tap and clap. These activities will help get their blood flowing once again.
Increased social interaction with caregivers and others is another benefit of music therapy for seniors. It encourages bonding with others, which can help alleviate feelings of loneliness and depression.
