So, you’ve planned an entire day out with your loved ones. Maybe you were thinking about having a picnic outdoors, a day at the beach, or a simple walk in the park. However, the weather may have different plans and you may find your entire itinerary upended thanks to some stormy weather. In situations like these, it is always helpful to have some indoor activities that you can fall back on as a backup.
Alternatively, if your loved one may have some trouble leaving the home (due to mobility issues for instance) indoor activities may be your best bet at keeping them mentally, physically, and socially stimulated. In this article, we cover a couple of indoor activities that all seniors can enjoy. We try to be as inclusive as possible, but feel free to tweak or select certain ideas that work best for your own individual contexts.
Nowadays video games aren’t just a past-time indulged by kids and young adults. Today, the video game industry caters to a wide range of audiences and covers a broad range of genres. Furthermore, with the emergence of consoles and specialized gamepads, individuals of varying physical limitations can find fun with games that we all love. Some video games can be played together in groups (known as co-op games), which can foster bonding between you and your loved ones.
One of the joys of modernity is that accessibility to media has never been easier. Streaming services bring you a wide range of movies and television shows from all over the world. You can find older movies that your loved one watched in his or her youth, or you can spring for the latest blockbuster for the family. Alternatively, if something you want is too hard to find online, you can order a physical copy using any number of dedicated shopping platforms.
A timeless source of fun, you’ll also realize that the board game industry has undergone massive shifts over the past few years. For instance, new board and card games are released every year and older board games have undergone various iterations and versions. There are also various genres of board games, ranging from mind teasers to grand strategy, to dungeon-crawlers. The time taken to complete board games can range from a couple of minutes to several hours, to even weeks and weeks. The latter can be great if you’re planning something regular, like a weekly board game night. The possibilities are limitless!
