Senior-Friendly Activities For All Seasons in Victoria, BC

Uncategorized  |  December 11, 2019

No matter how old we are, we are much happier when we participate in activities and events that bring us joy and fulfillment. While seniors may find it more difficult to engage in some activities, it is important to find a way for your loved one to be physically, mentally, and socially active through senior-friendly activities in the area.

Seniors who have something to look forward to and who are a part of their community or nurture their hobbies show less brain aging, better memory, and improved mood. What is more, studies have shown that enjoyable activities are important for both physical and mental health, elevating life quality and preventing a myriad of age-related challenges.

This is why families, caregivers, and medical professionals should all work together to build a plan that enables seniors to stay active and engaged and maintain a positive outlook on life through activity and socialization.

Here are activities your loved one might enjoy depending on the season:

Winter Activities

The holiday season is a great time for seniors to bond with loved ones. Examples of winter activities for seniors include:

  • Shopping for the holidays is not just a nice way to spend a day with loved ones but an opportunity to move their bodies
  • Singing, dancing, listening to music, and playing instruments are all excellent ways for seniors to enjoy music
  • Volunteering at soup kitchens, helping in animal shelters or reading to children can enable seniors to stay active while giving back to the community

Spring Activities

With the arrival of warmer weather, seniors can enjoy much more outdoor activities, including:

  • Exercising, going to the gym or swimming allow seniors to be physically active, boost their health, and get to know new people
  • Spring cleaning and organizing a yard sale let seniors have fun while cleaning their home
  • Celebrating spring holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Maya, Mother’s Day, Easter, and others offers plenty of opportunities for older adults to have fun with loved ones
  • Gardening enables seniors to adopt an enjoyable hobby and see their gardens or backyards transformed

Summer Activities

In the summer, seniors can engage in both indoor and outdoor activities like:

  • Water aerobics early in the morning or evening lets seniors reap all the benefits of exercising in the water while enjoying themselves in the nice weather
  • Going to the movies, going to the local shopping mall or inviting friends over for a drink all allow older adults to stay active even when it is scorching hot outside
  • Picnics, concerts, and barbecues are all activities that seniors can engage in with family and friends

Fall Activities

Seniors can participate in many activities during the fall as well, such as:

  • Watching football, baseball, and hockey at home or in a local pub is a great way for seniors to support their favorite teams while connecting with others from their community
  • Observing fall foliage while sitting on the porch or going for a hike is an excellent opportunity for older adults to converse with their nearest and dearest and possibly even engage in physical activity
  • Organizing family dinners or Halloween celebrations lets seniors spend quality time with loved ones while also giving them the chance to be creative in the kitchen
