Social Activities for Seniors that Enrich their Lives

A rocking chair is a nice place to relax once in a while, but with so many senior activities to get involved in, there’s no need to sit for long.

A study by the Harvard School of Public Health found evidence that seniors with active social lives may have a slower rate of memory decline than those who are more closed off. Previous studies suggested than an active social life may reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive decline among seniors.

At Richmond Beach Rehab, we’re all about offering a broad variety of fun activities for senior citizens and offering them an abundant amount of opportunity to socialize with their peers and their families. Here, you or your loved one will achieve that feeling of contentment by doing what is most pleasing to you as an individual.

Activities at Richmond Beach Rehab include:

  • Happy Hour
  • Cooking Time
  • Bingo/Pokeno
  • Family Night
  • Wii Games
  • Weekly Movies
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Monthly Outings (Tulip Festival, Christmas lights, trips to the beach etc.)

For example, you can express creative thought through painting, needlework, scrap-booking, wire sculpture, or many other handicrafts. You can keep up with your spiritual needs with a broad selection of special religious programs, meditation and prayer. You can keep your brain active with trivia sessions, word puzzles and other social activities like bingo. You can indulge in entertainment acts from the broader community or relax and watch a good matinee with freshly popped popcorn. You can even teach a new skill to others, like teaching a youngster how to knit or do patchwork.

These senior activities, plus many other social activities for seniors, allow our residents to engage with their families, make new friends, celebrate the seasons, and most importantly enjoy life in a senior living community!
