There is no question you could dream up a number of ways to finish that sentence – most likely with things you’ve always dreamed of doing, but put away until a date when money or time allows. But what about your senior loved ones in St. Joseph, MI? Don’t they still have dreams, aspirations, and hopes for the future as well?
Everybody needs a bucket list, and senior family and friends are no different. If one of your senior loved ones seems at a loss for new ideas to make life more exciting and fulfilling, try these suggestions to stimulate his or her wishful thinking:
- Adopt a new pet
- Try a new hobby, such as scrapbooking or painting
- Visit the town where he or she was born and raised
- Volunteer with a favorite charity
- Learn something new, such as a foreign language or musical instrument
- Create a legacy to pass down through writing memoirs
The important thing to keep in mind is that the activities should be ones your loved one is interested in, not just activities you think he or she should try regardless of your loved one’s wishes.
