Engaging in activities is not just about having fun and enjoying life. Daily leisure activities in nursing homes benefit seniors hugely. Many seniors suffer from loneliness which can lead to feelings of depression and isolation. Nursing homes offer a community where seniors are never alone.
By partaking in fun activities, seniors can engage with others and socialize. Even meal times are an important social occasion where people can chat with friends — or make new ones!
Mental stimulation through board games, crosswords, or arts and crafts has many cognitive benefits. It allows people to continue to learn and use logic, reasoning, and visual processing. Mental stimulation can also help to slow or prevent the onset of dementia.
