Categories : Senior Living Tips


Summer brings warm weather and for many people it is the perfect time to go out and enjoy the warmth. However, excess summer heat can be rough for seniors as they are vulnerable to suffer from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. However, this does not mean summers have to be drab and dull for seniors. There are many fun-filled activities that seniors can enjoy with family and friends while staying indoors. As one of the leading senior living communities in India, we share with you a list of amazing indoor summertime activities for seniors: 


  • Start an indoor garden: Gardening is a great low-impact physical activity for seniors. Also, growing plants and caring for them can have a calming and therapeutic effect on seniors. Growing plants in a balcony or terrace is a great opportunity for seniors to be creative and have fun. To make gardening less physically stressful, seniors can try vertical planting as it requires minimal bending and kneeling. 

  • Traditional board games and card games: There are many indoor games that seniors can play with their friends and family. Scrabble, Bingo, Monopoly, Bridge, Crossword puzzles, and Word search puzzles are some of the indoor games that help seniors socialise and enjoy friendly competition with other players. 

  • Art and craft: Seniors can pursue a new hobby or a craft project. They can paint, start quilting, or even join an online cooking class to learn making new cuisines. These activities not only help seniors nurture their creativity, but also help seniors feel a sense of accomplishment. 

  • Exercise: Seniors can exercise at home with friends and family members. Yoga, dancing, Zumba, or chair exercises can be easily done indoors. They can also join an online exercise class where they will be guided by qualified instructors.

  • Join a book club: Joining a book club is a great way for seniors to keep their mind active while avoiding the summer heat. They can join a local book club where they can share their thoughts, discuss new authors, and learn something new from other members.
