Shanti 15th Jun 2020 Housewife
Hi, my name is Shanti. I’m from Indonesia. I am very keen on doing some community service for the senior citizens in my city. As we all are aware of the current pandemic situation , the rules of our country do not permit elderly to step out of their homes for next few months. So i thought that since elders are confined to their homes , I could maybe contribute service by making something like a memory boosting box with activities and props and distribute to all elders. I think that some memory game like activities could help them keep their minds active while staying at home. Since the elderly are more prone to diseases like dementia and alzimer’s maybe some activities on those lines ! Am looking for ideas and suggestions and resources that could help me fill up my brain boost box !! Can someone help me?
