Being a senior doesn’t mean you have to slow down and spend all your time at home. There are likely many places near your home that host events for seniors and other happenings around town for those who are interested in spending time with others who have similar interests. If you aren’t sure where to start, a quick call to your local senior center can likely help you find out about activity for seniors. You can also do an online search of activities in your area and find something you’re interested in. Just because the event isn’t specifically for seniors doesn’t mean you won’t find others of a similar age who are also looking for ways to spend their time.
Senior activities can be found for those of all physical abilities. If you’re physically active, you may be able to find a local swimming club or other fitness based activity geared towards seniors. For those who have limited physical abilities but still enjoy spending time with other seniors who share similar interests, a book club or hobby club could be ideal. Those who are talented at crafting, quilting, or other hands-on activities, or those who are looking to learn, can search for a specific event related to those types of tasks. If you have a library nearby, they often hold meetings and get-togethers and they’re not always based solely on reading.
