18 Engaging Senior Activities

From Grandma Graffiti Workshops to Social Senior Farms

— November 13, 2015 — Life-Stages
While it's often assumed that the elderly prefer to spend time knitting, reading, revisiting old family photo albums or sitting idly in a care facility, these dynamic senior activities show just how vibrant life can be during old age.

For many, retirement is a time to return to favorite pastimes, but many seniors and Baby Boomers are embracing this time in their lives as the perfect opportunity to experiment with new hobbies and try something new for the very first time. Some of the best examples of this include the LATA 65 Lisbon Project, which teaches seniors about art and culture through graffiti, or the Experience Plus Bicycle Training program, which is specifically geared towards people over the age of 50.
