Art and crafts
Art and crafts is the most common activity elders can indulge in. Elders can utilize their creative potential to their maximum ability and make a variety of items. Even low functioning seniors can do it, crafts do not need to be difficult or elaborate. Most seniors would be able to handle many of the supplies required to make most projects, but there are even some good craft ideas for dementia patients, and those with arthritis and even some visual impairment.
Games and activities can bring people together in groups and enhance a sense of belonging and participation. Laughter has its own benefit but games can also help improve memory, dexterity, reduce stress and remove a sense of isolation. Winning prizes is exciting and can quickly become the highlight of the day.
Loving Adult Family Home will help residents attend religious services if they wish. Ministers, priests, and rabbis often visit the home if asked, while for others can be arranged transportation to and from local churches and synagogues.
Movie time is a time to relax with other residents and enjoy favorite movies. We provide a big range of movie selections that will leave everyone smiling.
The secret to feeling better and living longer it’s staying active. Loving Adult Family home will help you find a program that works best for you. Regular exercise can prevent or delay diabetes and heart trouble. It can also reduce arthritis pain, anxiety and depression. It can help older people stay independent.
There are four main types of exercise that seniors at Loving Adult Family Home can benefit of:
- Endurance activities – like walking – which build “staying power” and improve the health of the heart and circulatory system
- Strengthening exercises which build muscle tissue and reduce age-related muscle loss
- Stretching exercises to keep the body limber and flexible
- Balance exercises to reduce the chances of a fall
Patients who have difficulty moving around because of illness or injury may benefit from physical therapy. The physical therapist or aide uses exercise, massage, heat packs, and parallel bars to help residents improve their strength and agility. They also teach you to use wheelchairs, braces, and artificial limbs.
An occupational therapist helps people with illness or injury become as independent as possible in their everyday activities.
Massage for our residents has various physical and mental benefits, which results in the improvement of health and general well-being. The techniques used for senior citizens differ greatly from those used with younger individuals so our massage therapists strive to understand those differences in order to better treat our residents.
