5 Ideas for Fun Activities to Schedule with Your Elderly Loved One



Caregivers in Bridgeport CT

Caregivers in Bridgeport CTWhen you're a family caregiver, there's a lot of mandatory activities you have to stick to, but you can have some fun with your loved one, too. Try some of these activities and you might be surprised what you and your loved one enjoy doing together.

Schedule a Nature or Neighborhood Walk

Taking a walk together is a great way for both you and your loved one to get some added exercise. If you plan your walk carefully, though, you can make it an experience. Try finding a nature walk area and identify the plants and animals that you see along the way. You can also do the same thing in your neighborhood or in neighborhoods nearby that have interesting architecture.

Window Shop at Local Stores

Window shopping can be a lot of fun. The bonus is that you aren't spending any money and you don't have to figure out where to put your new purchases. You can also get a good bit of exercise. Try window shopping in a mall or in a favorite strip center. You may want to visit stores in your own town that you haven't seen before or you can make a road trip out of it and visit stores a few miles away from your town.

Rent a Movie and Make it an Experience

Few of us are able to have a movie theater in our own homes, but we can replicate the experience a bit. Rent a movie, either from a DVD kiosk or from a streaming service, and pop some popcorn with your loved one. Turn out the lights to make it as dark as you can in the room and then fire up the movie. Consider making movie afternoons or nights a regular part of your routine.

Bake Something Tasty and Share It

Does your loved one hold the secret family recipe for something really tasty? Consider baking a double batch and then sharing it with neighbors and family members. They'll love the treat and you will both gain a lot from spending a few hours together baking.

Establish a Game Day

Another really fun way to spend an afternoon or evening is to play some board or card games that your loved one enjoys. Try building up a collection of games and invite some of your loved one's friends over to play. You might even make it a regular event where you can get together with other family caregivers while your loved ones play games together.

It's important to add recreation activities to your schedule and to your loved one's schedule so that you're able to spend time together just having fun.
