Activities for Seniors
If you are looking for fun and enriching activities for seniors, you've come to the right place. Whether you're a senior yourself or if you are looking for information about senior activities for a parent, grandparent or other loved one, learn about activities for very an active senior, like yoga, or a less active senior, like puzzles.
Activities for Active Seniors
If you are an active, healthy senior there is no limit to the activities available to you! Think of things you've always dreamed of doing, and then do it. If you've always wanted to see the country, consider renting an RV and doing just that. Or you could book a flight and see the world.
There are also fun and engaging activities closer to home. Now is a wonderful time to take up a new hobby. Birdwatching, Tai Chi, yoga, and hiking are all good, entertaining options. Dancing, cards, board games, exercise classes and other group activities provide socialization and are offered at many senior centers. Groups like the Red Hat Society can also be fun social outlets.
Remember to get your doctor's approval before starting an exercise program. This is good advice for people of any age.
Activities for Less Active Seniors
Even if poor health limits your options somewhat, there are still many activities for you to enjoy. Puzzles provide hours of stimulating entertainment. Bingo, board games, crafts, skits, and chair exercises are other possibilities.
