There is no question you could dream up a number of ways to finish that sentence – most likely with things you’ve always dreamed of doing, but put away until a date when money or time allows. But what about your senior loved ones? They still have aspirations, dreams, and hopes for the future. 

Everyone needs a bucket list, and older adults are no exception. Do any of your senior loved ones seem uninspired to come up with new ideas to make life more fulfilling and interesting? Try these suggestions to stimulate their wishful thinking:

  • Create a legacy to pass down through writing memoirs
  • Volunteer with a favorite charity
  • Visit the town where he or she was born and raised
  • Try a new hobby, such as scrapbooking or painting
  • Learn something new, such as a foreign language or musical instrument
  • Adopt a new pet

Keep in mind that the items should be ones your senior loved one is interested in, not just items you believe he or she should do. The Atlanta caregivers at Regency Home Care are experienced in helping make life more fulfilling and enjoyable for seniors, and can help not only get a bucket list conversation started with your senior loved one, but also devise plans with you to fulfill those wishes. Reach us at 678-999-2446 for more suggestions, or for help with making those dreams turn into reality.
