Activities for Elderly People

This is a list of great activities for elderly people!

Elderly people love to play games almost as much as young people do. It's just that young people enjoy a little more activity than elderly people. So if you're having a family get-together or whatever the reason, you want to try to gear your game selection so that everyone has fun! Mind games are a good way to keep the elder person's mind alert and active. Simple hand games can help with arthritis. Whatever games you choose, the key is to make it fun!

One good classic that would be fitting for elderly people, are board games. Board games are a very good selection. They are fun and are a great way to challenge the mind (this is the key to the type of games that old people enjoy.) One of the most popular board games is checkers. Checkers is a game that has been a classic for hundreds of years! It is also quite simple, and most people know how to play it. The next classic board game is chess. Chess is a quite complicated game though, and most people probably don't know how to play it. But if everyone knows the game then it is a great mind challenging game! The next game is a must have for family get together. It involves multiple players and is a great family game! There are a lot more of great board games, but those are some of the most classic and popular games!

 Elderly people also enjoy some recreational activities every once and a while. This is good to have if you are having an outdoor family event. One thing that old and young people love is croquet. This is a great game to set up that elderly people will love! Another one is golf. A lot of elderly people love golf. It is an outdoor, fresh air activity that provides some exercise and is fun too! A good activity also that young and elderly alike enjoy, is fishing. Elderly people like to do things that they did back in their youth (especially with their grandchildren.) This is an activity that is mostly enjoyed by men, but there are a lot of women who enjoy it also! Another great thing that the elderly love to do, is bicycling. That is a very good way to get exercise and is very nice riding down a quiet, serine, and peaceful nature trail.

 There are a lot of things that the elderly enjoy, but I just listed what I think they enjoy most!
