Hi I was wondering what everyone does to celebrate Seniors Week? In the past we have not celebrated it - I would love to do something special this year for them. (Apart from organising a bus trip to events in our community). Thank you in advanced!

Hi Carmen, Senior€™s Week should be celebrated with something special everyday. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate or expensive. Here are a few ideas:

  • Ukulele lessons demonstration
  • Karaoke session
  • BBQ Lunch
  • Jumbo games: Snakes & Ladders, Ring Toss and others.
  • Intergenerational Craft: match elders with children for creative activities.
  • A concert
  • A picnic
  • Dancing school demonstration
  • Art Expo: Gather drawings and paintings made by residents and put on display for pride and confidence.

Best wishes, I hope the above is food for thought.

Hi Carmen,

I found an old article on our site regarding this too. I have added it to the calendar.
