Daily Activities for Seniors
Westminster Retirement, Assisted Living and Care Home
As we see our loved ones aging, they might not always feel this way internally. It's very important for our loved ones to maintain activities, hobbies, and physical exercise they have enjoyed their whole lives. We must support and encourage our loved ones as they find their comfort zones. We offer many daily scheduled activities, exercise, and crafts so that each resident gets familiar with the daily routine. Our activities directors work together to create a monthly calendar with anywhere from four to five daily activities with scheduled times. Our Residents have a copy of this schedule in their rooms so that they are able to decide which activities they wish to participate in and plan their days out accordingly.
We are able to take the residents for outings as this encourages cognitive development by decreasing depression and loneliness. Activity and companionship play a very important role as we age. We have found that often when our loved ones are surrounded by others, they feel supported and are able to open up and thrive in their environment. Our activity directors can provide a safe space as mobility is often times limited and falls may be frequent. This is a leading factor of why our loved ones stop doing the things they love. They may lose confidence in their abilities. We want to encourage our loved ones to express their personality through activities. Some of these may include, but are not limited to:
- Crossword Puzzles
- Nail Care
- Bored games
- Happy Hour
- Wine & Cheese
- Live performers
- Forever Fit
We strive for our residents to be as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
