It’s time to get better connected to your loved one in senior care! We’ve listed 3 simple, yet powerful, ways for you to have a greater bond and improve your relationship with your senior. Take a look below and begin implementing these ideas!

Social Activities

Getting social with your senior is one of the best ways to connect with them! Engaging in social activities, like water aerobics or a mentally stimulating board game like chess, will help to improve your senior’s overall health, both emotionally and physically.

Emotional Health. Allowing your senior to frequently interact with others will positively impact their mood and ward off depression – whether it’s with family or other seniors in senior care!

Physical Health. Getting your senior active in physical activities will help to increase their strength, work up an appetite, and help them sleep better – All of which will improve their overall physical health!

Using Technology

If you can’t always physically be there with your senior, using technology will help to keep you connected!

Tablets. Seniors love tablets! They are easy to use and do not require a bunch of instructions. Tablets make great options for activities like making video calls, browsing the web, scrolling through photos, keeping in touch via email, and setting reminders.

Simple Computers. All-in-one computers are another easy device for your senior to use. Using email, video chatting, and surfing the internet are a breeze with these special applications!

Talking and Visiting

Spending time with and being in the company of your senior provides the ultimate way to connect with them.

Share Memories. Talk about your favorite memories with your senior! It stimulates their memory, engages their mind, and also reminds them of the many good times they have had with family and friends throughout their life.

Ask for Advice. Asking for advice from your senior shows them that their thoughts and opinions are still valued! This simple gesture helps to convey the love and respect you have for your senior.
