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.
