Holiday Crafts For Seniors: The Benefits For Toronto Seniors

Activities for Seniors  |  October 5, 2016

That time of year is almost upon us – the holiday season. Or has it already begun? Fall and early winter are full of holidays – Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Halloween, Chanukah, Christmas, and Boxing Day. The holiday season can bring mixed blessings for many seniors. The loss of family members, friends, and declining health can make holidays difficult for some.

Luckily, there are several ways to help seniors cope with any stress the holiday season may bring – craft making. Studies have shown a positive correlation between creativity and increased levels of happiness,  hand-eye coordination, cognitive abilities, and sense of pride. There are so many resources online, such as Pinterest, where craft making ideas are endless.

Easy Craft Making For The Elderly: Bringing Joy To Everyone

Family and professional caregivers can bring joy to a senior’s holiday season – and make him or her more active and involved in the season – with little more than the gift of time and some materials for crafts and decorations. Holiday craft making can lift seniors’ spirits, get their creative juices flowing and keep their minds and hands active.

You may end up departing from old family traditions, but you will help a senior make new memories as you craft and decorate together over some hot cocoa and holiday music.

You can fully engage the senior in the celebration of the season by making homemade holiday crafts together that can double as decorations. Or try a new holiday recipe together. A variety of Web sites also provide ideas for homemade holiday gifts.

Examples of sites with craft, decoration, card, and gift ideas include:

Add to the fun by involving family and friends to help with the crafts and decorating. While making new memories, a senior may also appreciate getting out old photo albums to reminisce about past holidays.

Comfort Keepers® can help. Our caregivers can provide daily actives such as craft making and holiday celebrations. They will also take note of the senior’s overall health, see that they take medications, help them follow dietary guidelines, and perform daily tasks around the home. Call your local office today to discover all of our available services.
