Encouraging your ageing parents to participate in some activities will definitely help improve their overall health and recovery after a particular operation.
1. Learn a new game
Board games, card games, word games, online games — pick something you both enjoy and either learn how to play or work on improving your skills. Not only is this a fun way to spend leisure time, but it gives you both something to do if you need a pick-me-up.
2. Create a family tree
Ask your loved one about his or her personal history and the family’s history, and put all of your new knowledge into designing a family tree. Consider recording these sessions so that future generations can hear the stories and connections for themselves!
Even if your loved one has physical limitations, there are plenty of ways to be in motion. Consider daily walks, chair exercise DVDs or, even, Wii video games, which offer low-impact fitness and sports games.
4. Seek out events
Wherever you live, there are likely plenty of performances, concerts and festivals happening every week or month, many of which will appeal to you and your loved one. Not only are these fun to attend, but scheduling them creates something fun for you both to look forward to.
5. Plant a garden
Whether it’s at home or as part of a community garden, this activity will give you both something to come back to again and again. Even if your loved one has restricted mobility, he or she can still come out and enjoy watching the garden grow.
At My Aged Care, we organize such fun activities for all the elderly parents and we try to cater the best for them. Rest assured that your loved one is in good hands for at My AgedFor more info on our nursing care services, click here to contact us.
