1.Enroll in Group Exercise ClassesGroup exercises, like yoga or cycling, are fun and social ways to improve flexibility and balance, and it also is fun activities to participate in. Exercising is the key to preventing falls in older adults. Some communities offer chair exercise classes, while others may provide water aerobics programs, appealing to seniors living with arthritis.
2.Walking ClubsWalking around the community or nearby parks is an easy way for a senior to keep active and can be an excellent avenue to making friends. Some communities even arrange transportation so that club members can walk in a nearby park or on a walking path.
3.Art ClassesFor seniors who have worked hard to make a living, retirement can open the door to newfound creativity. Watercolor and acrylic painting and drawing and sketching are all high on the list of avenues for artistic expression, and making art in a group can be an enjoyable way to engage with others.
4.Life Story ExercisesThere may be no activity for elders that’s more meaningful than capturing their own unique life story. So help them write their stories, gather their photos, create memoirs. Not only do they preserve a slice of history, but they also get the chance to reflect on their own life experiences.
