10 Lifelong Learning Themes for the Elderly

Our Seniors Church members about 4-5 members visit one Care facility about once every 3 months due the scheduling of other programs for the High Care participants. We play the piano and sing small chorus's familiar from Sunday School. Its the short talks I'm concerned about. It can be a bible story or one with a moral or just something to get their interest. None could play a game. most are confined to beds, while others just sit un-engaged. As I am a fairly bright Senior, I try to speak slowly and clear, I try eye contact and touching as well. I can see that their attention span is limited but I am trying to find ways to spark their interest. Should I try Audience participation? tell a story with flash cards? any help would be really appreciated.
