Many seniors today are choosing to age in place within their own homes with the support of their families. At some point, however, the aging process simply makes it too hard for seniors to get out and participate in activities like they once did.

When a senior becomes homebound, excessive sleep or television viewing is common, and that’s simply not good for their health and wellbeing.

Loneliness and depression can further diminish a senior’s interest in previous activities, notably when they’ve recently lost a spouse. If you are providing care for a homebound senior, finding healthier ways for them to stay entertained is important so that they can keep living at home for many years to come.


Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness.
