Elderly people living with disabilities or mobility issues often struggle to accomplish self-care and household tasks. This can affect their mental and physical health. But the most common consequence is loss of self-esteem and isolation. This may result in helplessness and/or depression for lack of independence and social interaction. They are more likely to remain at home and have a higher risk of developing chronic diseases due to lack of physical activity.
Thus, trying various fun activities can help improve their quality of living and allow them to create new relationships. Here are some recreational activities that can boost a senior’s mood without the need of moving around too much:
- Learning how to paint or taking dance and music lessons
- Reading new materials and writing short articles
- Doing simple stretching exercises or light yoga
- Simple gardening at home
