Hi everyone, I currently work in an Activity Centre with members being 80+, I have applied to be the activity officer in an Over 55's village, any ideas for more active seniors would be greatly appreciated and welcomed. Many Thanks.

I would organise a meet and greet, possibly over a morning or afternoon tea, with people from an Over 55's village and find out what they like to do or their wish list - this will give you something to go by, these individuals will have ideas that you can formulate into providing various activities and possibly have a lot of help getting things going too. It is far different than being with people of 80+ and save you from any disappointment in introducing an activity that people of this age group simply do not want. If you are in Australia, do they have a U3A group? Hope this helps.
