Ways to Help Seniors Achieve Their Life Goals

August 8, 2016
Senior care

“One day…”

At Home Matters, we’re sure you can imagine a lot of interesting ways to conclude that thought – perhaps with activities and adventures you’ve always dreamed of pursuing, but just haven’t had a chance to turn into reality. But what about older loved ones? Don’t the seniors in your life still have dreams, aspirations, and hopes for the future as well?

Everybody has some sort of a bucket list, and older loved ones are no exception. If a senior you care for seems unwilling or unable to dream up ideas to live life to the fullest, try these suggestions to stimulate his or her wishful thinking:

  • Visit the town where he or she was born and raised.
  • Volunteer with a favorite charity.
  • Try a new hobby, such as scrapbooking or painting.
  • Create a legacy to pass down through writing memoirs.
  • Learn something new, such as a foreign language or musical instrument.
  • Adopt a new pet.

It is important to consider that the things should be ones the senior is interested in, not just activities you feel he or she should try regardless of what he or she would like to do. Home Matters can help get a bucket list conversation started with your senior loved one, and then devise plans with you to fulfill those wishes. Give us a call for more senior care tips, or for hands-on assistance with turning “one day” into today.
