When your older residents living in a nursing room then it’s your love to visit them on regular bases. It’s not only your love infact it’s your moral duty to visit them in a nursing home to show your love and respect for them. In this way they will get surprised and even they become happy it is just because you are showing your love for them. You can visit there with some pleasant surprises it should be good for them even in this way you can show your love and respect for them.
I have some ideas for all of you guys for fun things to do with residents in a nursing home.
Connection with family
Keep them connected with family in this way they will get satisfied with their life. Assume yourself in this situation and think first when you are alone and no one is with you then at that point what are your feelings that nobody cares for you nobody look after you there is nobody in your life who can share your feelings after thinking this then take a look on your elders that they can also think like this so let them family connected.
Enjoy Music With them
While Listening to music you can enjoy your lives. Music is the only source to release tensions you can enjoy your life while listening to music. Now it depends on your choice what kind of music you like. If you are slow music lover then you could listen slow music it just depends on you.
Eat a meal or snack together
Its another way to surprise your elders when you visit them. Arrange a lunch or dinner with them together as a family now it depends on your arrival time. If you are arriving there at afternoon then you can arrange a lunch or else if you are arriving there in night then you can go for a dinner and enjoy the meal with them together.
Get a furry friend for them
It’s your loving pet with whom you are spending your life at your living area which means your own house. Old age people loves these kind of pets a lot if you are visiting them then just bring a furry friend for them it would made them feel special.
Get some fresh air
Its another way to make your elders feel special at the nursing home to go and get some fresh air with them. With the taste of fresh air they will feel relax.
Reminisce over old photos
When you are visiting your elders at nursing home just bring them with an album of old photos in that manner they will get relax while reminding their old photos with their families.
Take them on short outings
Take your elders on short term outings in those kind of snowy areas or hilly type areas in this way they will get relax from their hectic routines in old nursing homes.
