Visiting senior friends and relatives living in Assisted Living communities is an excellent opportunity for children and grandchildren to bond with their loved ones. However, children can sometimes become restless during these visits, leading to boredom for both the child and resident. Therefore, it's essential to keep children engaged. Here are some tips:
Encourage children to communicate with the senior resident during the visit. Even if the child is hard to understand, most seniors appreciate the engagement. Encourage the child to share about their day, hobbies, friends, or pets. This helps to keep the conversation going, creating meaningful connection between the child and the senior resident.
In this episode, Ali sits down with Dr. Adrian Wagg to talk about how seniors can maintain healthy and strong bones through exercise and diet. Dr. Liang then guides us through some exercises accessible to seniors of all abilities before Dr. Wagg finishes the episode with an easy to remember tip about bone health.
