Share Your Elderly Activities
Forum

Welcome to our elderly activities forum -- a fun page where visitors (like you) can share ideas. Who do you help or care for?

Whether you help a family member, do group senior activities (such as at a club or senior center), or work at a senior campus, you may find some new ideas here.

We have readers from all over the U.S. and the world.  In fact, we'd love to hear more from our global friends, who may have particularly interesting things that are done in their special locations. And who doesn't need new ideas?

And of course, our readers would LOVE to hear from you, and what has worked well for your loved one or group. Or feel free to post a Comment or question.

It's easy to participate in this forum -- just jump right in and start typing! (All submissions and comments are reviewed first before posting). And be sure to let your friends, family and associates know when your submission has been posted.
