Topics within Social Life & Activities

Activities and social life may begin to wane for older adults who have lost spouses or are suffering from physical ailments. But staying active is still very important to the health and well-being of seniors no matter what their circumstance.

That's where family caregivers can help. Loved ones can encourage the seniors in their lives to find new ways to remain active if the old ones no longer work.

Whether it's assisting them in planting a garden, planning a trip or just reconnecting with old friends, it's never too late to offer that older adult in your life an encouraging word and a helping hand.
