Senior Activity Calendars
Month after month, find unique, senior activity ideas that will excite and fulfill your residents and that can be added easily to your monthly activity calendar. Feel free to use these activities if you need to add more activities to your upcoming senior activity calendar.
One of the easiest ways to come up with new and fresh ideas for your activity calendar each month is to relate your activities to specific observances or happenings for the month. You will find these fun observances and holidays, which can spark interesting ideas for senior activities, listed in each of the senior activity calendars.
Cool your residents down this summer by adding in activities that hydrate your residents. For instance, host a Watermelon Break on August 3, serve treats from your Ice Cream Truck on August 11, and hand out popsicles during your Cool as Ice Social on August 25.
Don't forget about the men this month. Consider hosting a fun Men's Spa Day on National Men's Grooming Day (August 15), in which you invite a barber to give haircuts to the men or hosting a fun Men in the Kitchen activity (August 27), in which the men bond in the kitchen while preparing tasty ice cream sandwiches.
It's time for school to begin again. Consider hosting fun activities relating to a Back-to-School theme for your residents to enjoy. For instance, coordinate a Back-to-School Week in which you provide a variety of fun, school-related activities like Theater Class (September 2), Math Quiz (September 3), History Notes (September 4), and Woodshop Class (September 5).
Furthermore, coordinate activities to celebrate the fresh autumn season. For example, celebrate the first day of autumn by hosting a fun Autumn Social on September 22. In addition, recruit your residents to get your facility decorated for the new season by creating fall centerpieces (Crafts: Autumn Centerpieces on September 25).
Celebrate the harvest season with fun harvest games and activities. For example, invite residents to bake harvest cookies (Baking Club: Autumn Harvest Cookies on October 3), to tell harvest stories (Harvest Stories on October 4), or to attend a fun harvest-themed carnival (Harvest Carnival Social on October 12).
Additionally, get your residents into the Halloween spirit with fun Halloween-themed activities like watching the scary classic Frankenstein during the Frankenstein Matinee (October 29), playing Halloween Pictionary (October 29), or writing Halloween Letters to Family (October 27).
