  • Play a game like checkers, chess or scrabble.

  • Go out for a walk around the block/walk the dog, if the weather permits.

  • Color together using the large-sized crayons, which are easier on senior’s hands.

  • Ask your loved one to peel the potatoes or cut the green beans for dinner.

  • Gather many of the same type of items and have your loved one sort them by color, date, etc.

  • Massage your loved one’s legs and arms with their favorite scented lotion.

  • Play music to sing and dance along to.

  • Start a interactive game like “I Spy.”
