It is no great secret that Hamlets Deer park offers its senior living community in Red Deer a number of fun, active and engaging social programs. These programs are great for many of the residents, but may not suit the needs or desires of the more introverted seniors. So here are some activity suggestions for introverted seniors in the independent living community in Red Deer and everywhere else.
Read or Listen to an Audiobook
Reading is a great way to exercise your brain and keep your wits about you. It is quiet, can be done alone or with others, and is easy to pick up. There are books of many genres to meet the tastes of almost anyone. Of course, audiobooks are a great option to, and can be a relaxing way to start or end a day.
Go For a Walk
Going for a walk does not need to be a social activity, and sometimes going for a walk alone gives us a chance to gather our thoughts and enjoy our surroundings. Better yet, with spring and summer on the way, go for a walk outside and enjoy that crisp, fresh Red Deer air.
Take up a Hobby
Maybe it is time to take up a hobby, or revisit an old one. Whether you enjoy drawing, writing, playing an instrument, or even tying a fly, find something that you enjoy to do. Yes, sudoku can be a hobby.
Engaging in an activity that works with your introverted personality can be a great way to help you feel more energetic, happy, and satisfied. If you need help with any of these suggestions, or ideas of your own, do not be afraid to ask your family or caregivers for help to get started.
