It might seem like participating in outdoor activities is the only way to have fun during the holidays, but that as not true. There are plenty of activities that you and your loved one can do together inside. Elmhurst Extended Care Center recommends 6 great activities so you and your elderly loved one can have fun together indoors this holiday season.  

Have you ever considered how fun a simple movie night can be? Well EECC says that sitting in a warm home while watching a good movie is a great way to have some fun. All you must do agree on a movie, get your loved one and yourself into comfortable sitting positions and watch the movie. You can make this more personal by asking your aging loved one what their favorite movie is and watching it together. Plus, if you two get hungry during the movie, you can get some snacks from the kitchen.  

If you are wondering what else you can do, EECC also says that picking out presents with your loved one is a fun activity. Your aging loved one might not be able to move around a lot and it might be too cold outside, so use technology and bring the experience of shopping to your elderly loved one. Look through websites and choose some gifts for other members of the family. There are a variety of ways to have fun inside.
