Some people feel excited to get old because of the perks, such as great discounts at stores and having to relax all day long for the rest of their lives. Little did they know that lying around for several hours every day could be boring at some point. This is the reason more and more adults, when they age, prefer doing the household chores instead.
Household tasks, however, can sometimes cause too much stress. This is where senior activity centres come in. They do not only help the elderly be physically active, but also give them time to have fun.
The Adult Care Centres
Also known as senior activity centres, industry professional ntuchealth.sg explains that these are facilities for the elderly that holds programs to keep seniors busy. They conduct different activities that are both fun for them, and promotes their well-being at the same time.
The elderly are not the only one benefitting from this, as caregivers can also take their breaks at the same time.
The people behind these organisations or facilities include the director (of the activities), their assistants, the social workers, a medical representative (usually a nurse), and for some, the driver to pick the seniors up to and from their homes, the cleaning and maintenance services, then the office workers such as secretary and accountant.
The Services Offered
Adult care centres differ from adult healthcare centres in a sense that the latter admits people who require special attention due to certain health needs.
The most common activities that they hold includes singing or even dancing in groups, discussions, making arts and crafts, exercise, and games. They also celebrate birthdays and holidays. They may put themes on their activities depending on the occasion.
Apart from killing boredom, senior activity centres allow everyone to form new friendship between participants. It may also enhance their physical and mental health with all the activities that they do.
