Does your Elderly or Senior loved one spend a lot of time sleeping or watching TV?  Too much of those activities isn’t really healthy for anyone.  The kinds of activities that benefit Elderly individuals are those that mentally stimulate the mind or require movement.  If your loved one seems stressed or depressed a lot of the time, perhaps they don’t have enough activities in their daily life to occupy themselves with.  Or perhaps they need a companion to share the experience with.

This article on LoveToKnow provides a list of fun activities that you and your loved one, or your loved one and one of your caregivers, can participate in.  It’s always good to get some fresh air outdoors and your loved one might enjoy bird watching or gardening.  Puzzles, painting, knitting, and playing computer games can help stimulate the mind.
