Craft and creation

We might be experts in alarms for the elderly but we also like to get our creative juices flowing. How do you think we came up with so many great personal alarms?

No matter your age or experience, there is always something for everyone. Crafting can also be a useful way to keep the mind active which can help loved ones with dementia, another good activity for the elderly.

Hobbycraft has a great range of skilled tutorials on their YouTube channel including drawing, painting, crochet, sewing, knitting. So if you want to find hobbies for women at home, they will give you a full step by step to improve your hobby.

If you’re looking for a one-off project, The Crafty Gentleman is your man! Starting with his love of crafts, Mike began blogging his arty projects as a sideline, and now he’s dedicated a large part of his life to creating content for hobbies that everyone can enjoy at home. He prides himself on creating step by step unique projects, encouraging men to partake in most craft projects. We particularly love his blog on ‘Craft Projects to do while in Self-Isolation’, which has home-makes on many different levels.

Release some serotonin with fun activities for seniors!

Lockdown and 2020, in general, has been pretty tough on us all so although we can mention many ideas for activities for elderly women at home, the main purpose is to release some happy hormones and get yourself away from the glum feeling.

Physical activities that are good ideas for activities for the elderly and that release happy hormones can include:

  • Yoga
  • Gardening
  • Exercising
  • Meditation
  • Dog Walking

All of these are great ideas for activities for the elderly for reducing stress and improving wellbeing. These activities can also reduce panic, anxiety and possible ease stress-related illnesses, which makes them especially important at the moment. They could even help with memory loss, focus, and concentration.

Can you think of any other fun activities for seniors? Let us know if you do and we will spread the word and add them to our list of fun activities for seniors.

If you're not used to being active, you could start with a walking meditation (walking and focusing on your breathing in and out), or perhaps a 5-minute meditation exercise first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Take a look at our blog on meditation for some inspiration.
