Fun and games are every bit as important for seniors as they are for anyone else. With age comes challenges with health, mobility and increasingly limited independence. All too often, seniors struggle with feelings of loneliness, isolation and boredom. While the physical and medical needs of seniors are usually the first to be addressed by family and caregivers, supporting seniors emotionally is equally important to their overall wellness. For seniors, board games offer nostalgia and simple pleasures. They are an accessible and enjoyable way to elevate the spirit and maintain a higher quality of life.
Here at Comfort Keepers Peterborough, we know the value of a daily dose of joy. Each of our senior clients has their own interests and abilities and, fortunately, there are board games to suit just about anyone’s tastes. Together we can revisit old favourites like Scrabble, Backgammon and Chess or explore some of the fun and engaging games that are released every year. The special caregivers we call Comfort Keepers are ready to promote joyful independent living through play. Helping our senior clients find moments of joy through play lifts the spirit and improves their quality of life, both of which are at the heart of our philosophy of care.
Board games provide seniors with fun, laughter and an opportunity to challenge their minds. Games are a wonderful way for seniors to pass the time, lift their spirit and feel connected. Whether the game is creative or strategic, everyone benefits. Our Comfort Keepers are always happy to help their senior clients play board games and share moments of joy.
