Senior Activities & Retirement Ideas

Your One-Stop Resource

Baby boomers, seniors, caregivers

This site is handy for those who work with and/or care for seniors, whether in-home or at a campus setting. That includes family members, activity directors, church groups, senior centers, care centers for the elderly, and more. Even teens and kids can get some great ideas here for grandparents and other seniors they know.

It’s often family members who need to know how to quickly find information about care for elderly, retirement and senior activity ideas; and more for elderly activities, especially if you (like me) are caring for elderly parents. Sometimes events are new and sudden.

I know. I was in that exact situation with our elderly father. At age 93 he suddenly had to move back here from his home in Arizona. I soon became his primary caregiver, semi-retiring early myself (well, more like re-firing). Dad first started out here in assisted living. But since his health was very good, he actually ended moving in with me! And it’s been a joy and an amazing experience.

Choosing Senior Activities

One of my challenges was using quality activities for seniors; keeping Dad (and others I work with) busy and feeling useful. Especially since Dad, like many others, has serious vision and hearing loss.

Choosing activities can depend on many factors, including health, dexterity, mobility, diet and nutrition, dementia, vision and hearing, etc.

So we discuss some of these issues on our site as well, tying them into keeping active and healthy.

Baby boomers may also want a few retirement ideas.Their own lives may be changing as well. So they also may have interest in some of the same services and activities that we talk about here.
