During the winter and cold season, family caregivers need ways to keep themselves and the seniors they care for warm and engaged. When the weather is warm there are many things to do, and seniors often participate in activities out of the house as the weather permits. However when the frost comes, it becomes a challenge to do activities.
Here are a few ideas for Union County Seniors and Family Caregivers to stay active in the Winter.
Indoor Activities for Union County Seniors
Board and Card Games: Sitting at the kitchen table playing cards or board games can be a great deal of fun. Chatting, and playing a fun game can be a great social opportunity for seniors.
Yoga: Yoga is a great activity for seniors who want to keep active. It can be done at home or out in the community. Either way, this low-impact activity can help seniors and their family caregivers relax a but stay warm inside.
Reading: There are many opportunities to pick up a book and dive into a sci-fiction narrative or a classic love story. A great read and a warm cup of hot chocolate, is relaxing while keeping warm. Library trips can also be good outings.
Groups and Clubs: There are tons of clubs and groups that seniors can join. There are support groups to talk about experiences, book clubs to talk about recent reads, and so much more. Seniors can enjoy this indoor activity, while staying warm during the cold chilly winter months.
Seniors are not bound indoors
Seniors who don't agree with the cold can avoid winter altogether, by staying indoors. Some seniors may enjoy heading outside for fresh air and activities that are well-suited to their mobility and level of comfort.
