What activities can you suggest for older people between the age of 75-80?
ideas or activities for older people both men/women in their 70s and 80s, they are not in the old age homes, still active. Should be activity between 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Checkers and cards. Other thanthat I would go with reading or having someone read to them.
Just enjoy their old life with nature, planting some vegetables and play with grand children. Mind to be relaxed all time. reading devotional books and watching some good cartoons for their good health.
I guess it really comes down to how healthy they are. Are they like actress Betty White, age 90, or Tony Bennett 85, working and getting around fine? Another factor to consider is where they are located. Some folks enjoy a nice morning walk to have breakfast at a local restaurant or even to sit and drink a cup of coffee at a bakery or McDonalds.
If there is a park nearby they may enjoy walking around it and if there is a small pond with pedal boats they might spend an hour or so cruising along. Another possible activity is volunteering to be a senior activities director at a local senior center or nursing home.
If there is a movie theater close by they can go see a matinee. Last but not least they can check the local paper to see what activities are planned for seniors in their area. Most towns and communities offer free or low cost activities for senior citizens. Public libraries also have lists of local activities.
However it all comes down to health and (desire). Some people young and old don't want to leave the house, meet other people, or become engaged in any activity other than eating, sleeping, and watching TV. It's important to remember that (life is a personal journey). As much as we might want something for those we love, if they don't want it for themselves then we must accept that their life is theirs to do with as they please. Just because we might feel we'd be unhappy in their situation does not mean (they) are unhappy.
Any activity that the individual is physically able to do is what I suggest. Age does not need to limit one's activiites unless there is a medical or physical limiting factor.
The more active one is, the healthier and more active they will want to be.
Walking, hiking, yard games...horseshoes, shuffleboard; tennis, golf, you name it.
I would definately suggest gardening.
Walks are very nice for the elderly.
Chess, checkers, backgammon, cards and other games alike.
I find that many of the elderly quite enjoy watching these quiz shows and doing crosswords and these sorts of activities are supposed to help prevent altzheimers too.
Baking can be fun.
Even just sitting, sipping tea and telling their stories from the past (while you listen. Wisdom does come with age and experience and they have both!).
Swimming is a good one.
