If your loved one is social distancing, it may be time for virtual family game night or another fun activity. You may want to consider dropping off a care package that has activities and games that they can do on their own, such as adult coloring books, jigsaw puzzles, word puzzles, or Sudoku (make sure the activities/games are the appropriate cognitive level for your loved one). These games will not only help pass the time, but it will also help keep their minds occupied and improve cognitive function.
You can also consider setting up virtual family game night with your loved ones. You could try playing Bingo, 20 Questions, or set up a trivia game. Your elderly loved one doesn’t have to be tech savvy for online games. Here are a few suggestions for games that they might enjoy. Some of these games will even allow them to connect with family and friends, helping them to feel a little less isolated.
