Top 5 Recreational Activities that Senior Citizens can Enjoy!
When you touch base retirement, you will expect changes in your day to day routine. If you are used to an active, busy lifestyle and now will become a mundane, carefree experience, somehow you feel useless that you ran out of things to do. But take your time, you will soon get to adjust and make use of your spare time wisely. So, why not take up a new hobby? Or volunteer? Be a member in several clubs or offer your services in the church. There are countless ways that you can enjoy your retirement stage and have a productive day.

Our flexibility in schedule gives you the chance to have some peace of mind while you are away on vacation. We have qualified home caregivers who will assist your elderly beloved and give them the companion required especially with leisure activities.
Here are recommended entertaining activities that your elderly loved ones will grow fond of depending on their personal interests.
- Stay fit and fab
Keep yourself healthy and active by using gym facilities available in the community or within the estate. Learn about different programs available in your fitness centre for example: a senior circuit exercise program, aerobics, yoga, Zumba, swimming classes, etc.
- Get involve in sports
If you are a sports junkie, invite your friend to play badminton with you, or tennis, croquet, or any other sports that you can manage and leisurely enjoy. Remember not to overdo yourself. Consult your doctor before you participate in any sporting activities.
- Join clubs
There are several clubs that you can sign in for membership such as gardening, book, and mountain clubs or if you like public speaking and leadership join Toastmasters International and many others you are interested in.
- Start a new hobby or attend classes
It is never too late to start something you have been postponing to do for the past years, for example, learning a language, playing the piano, enrolling in computer classes, line dancing or ballroom class. While at home, try scrapbooking, art, knitting, crocheting, or baking. Invite other family members to join you especially with your grandchildren. It is the perfect way to bond and spend quality time with family and friends.
- Attend social functions and events
One way to strengthen friendship with people is to do things together with them. If you have neighbours or friends that you haven’t seen or spoken to in a long time, why not invite them for a tea party or lunch where you can host it in your place? Or go to leisure centres where you can play Bingo or in the pub or bar for quiz night.
