At Best Home Care, we know the importance of finding quality homecare for your loved ones, especially during the cold winter months. However while we specialize in helping those in need find the right personal care assistants, home nurses, and home caregivers, we know that as loved ones and family members, you’d want to be aware of how you can make holiday gatherings and activities safe and fun for the seniors in your life.
We have come up with some fun activities for the holiday season that are great for the elderly whether they have homecare services or not! Here are some of our favorites!
- A card game tournament! Everyone enjoys a good card game whether it is Crazy 8’s or a rousing game of Go Fish!
- Play a board game! Classic board games like Monopoly or Clue are a great way to break out during a holiday gathering. Pick up a junior board game like Sorry or Chutes and Ladders to keep the kids entertained too!
- Cookie decorating! This is a fun Christmas time activity for all ages. Bake some cookies or gingerbread men ahead of time to bring to the party then provide different flavor frostings, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and of course some gumdrop buttons!
- Decorating stockings! Pick up some plain stockings from a craft store and some fun paints, glitter, and pompoms to stick on to each stocking. This is a great activity to do with the grandkids!
