Senior Assisted Living Communities:  There are many caring and compassionate resident communities that provide services for aging seniors.  Find a community near you by simply “Googling senior assisted living facility.”  Most of the ideas below are great for individuals and/or groups and are family friendly. 

Project Ideas: Conduct a Bingo Night or Create a Blessing Bag for a Senior
Once you find a center near you, call them and ask for the “activities director” and let them know what you’d like to do to help.  

Questions you may ask the senior home:
-Do they have Bingo events and would they like help running them one day/evening?
-Should you bring small prizes and or sweet treats for the Bingo winners?
Do they need volunteers to help with craft projects, gardening projects or holiday themed events?
-How many seniors are in the facility?
-Would they be interested in a “blessing bags” for their residents?  If so, what types of items would they prefer and what should you avoid putting in their blessing bag? 

Blessing bag suggestions:

  • Art/craft supplies: craft paper, watercolor supplies, colored pencils, adult coloring books, senior friendly craft projects.
  • Holiday Themed Bag:  Choose and upcoming holiday and include a sweet treat, a small room decoration or an easy craft they can complete.  Valentine, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day are all great occasions.
  • Book/DVD Kit: Nature or travel picture books, DVD movies (family-type & comedies are the most popular).  Nature, animal and travel documentaries are also appreciated.   Include a deck of cards or a large print book or bible.
  • Treat Bags: chocolates, granola bars, store bought cookies, nuts, pre-popped popcorn, bag of mints, Nilla crackers, Cracker Jacks
  • Spa/Toiletry Kit: toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, body wash, body spray, hand lotion, cloth face mask, slippers or socks with sticky bottoms (mens/womens).

*Please do not include hand sanitzers and manicure supplies as these are typically not permitted in the homes.

Family friendly:  Most of the time, the senior homes welcome young children as it’s always a joy for them to be around younger generations. However, you should check with your local center to see what they would prefer during these times.
