Many seniors get so caught up in their daily routines that they forget to share their stories with their adult children and grandchildren. But every senior has a unique story to tell. From writing down memories to creating a video, here are some ways for seniors to record their thoughts for the next generation.
Residents and staff at our Capital Senior Living communities around the nation are coming together on The Longest Day to raise more than $50,000 on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association. A few of the activities include karaoke nights, cupcake decorating competitions and potted plant sales. See how you can get involved in raising funds and awareness for this disease.
With extra time on their hands, seniors may find it beneficial to look into volunteering in their community. From maintaining forests to working with at-risk kids, there are a variety of ways older adults can do good and feel good at the same time.
They say “with age comes wisdom,” but the youth of today can provide many benefits to seniors. It’s time to start building an intergenerational relationship — whether it’s with your grandkids or community members. Volunteering your time to younger generations can be truly rewarding.
