We bet you can think of a variety of ways to finish that statement – with things you’ve always dreamed of doing, but put in the back of your mind until you have the money, means or time to pursue them. But what about senior family and friends? Chances are they still have dreams, aspirations, and hopes for the future as well.
Everyone needs a bucket list, and older adults are no exception. Do any of your senior loved ones seem uninspired to come up with new ideas to make life more interesting and fulfilling? With these suggestions and the help of in home care experts like those at Heaven at Home Senior Care in Denton, TX, we can help you stimulate seniors’ wishful thinking:
- Create a legacy to pass down through writing memoirs
- Volunteer with a favorite charity
- Visit the town where he or she was born and raised
- Try a new hobby, such as scrapbooking or painting
- Learn something new, such as a foreign language or musical instrument
- Adopt a new pet
Keep in mind that the items should be ones your senior loved one is interested in, not just items you believe he or she should do regardless of his or her interests.
