When Providing Senior Care, Preserve Purpose and Meaning with These Easy Tips

Perform an online search for the term “activities for seniors” and you’ll probably find a variety of crafts, games, memory stimulation puzzles, and of course, the requisite bingo. What you will not find, unless you search much harder, are the meaningful, philanthropic activities that provide purpose to our lives. Yet, if you ask seniors what they’d most wish to do, the majority of them won’t mention games, art projects, or bingo. What they want more than anything is to feel useful.

A Caregiver’s Guide to Adding Purpose and Value to Daily Activities for Seniors

“Hold on – let me help.” “Don’t over-exert yourself!” “You can just sit here and rest; I’ll handle that.” How many times have we made statements like these to seniors, with only the best intentions, naturally? We want to do whatever is possible to help our aging loved ones, to keep them safe and to look after them in the same way they took care of us when we were younger. Nonetheless, there is a concealed threat in trying to do too much for seniors and denying them the chance to do as much as possible independently – the danger of harming their self-assurance and sense of purpose and meaning in life.
