Senior Activities & Retirement Ideas. Your One-Stop Resource

Baby boomers, seniors, caregivers
This site is handy for those who work with and/or care for seniors, whether in-home or at a campus setting. That includes family members, activity directors, church groups, senior centers, care centers for the elderly, and more. Even teens and kids can get some great ideas here for grandparents and other seniors they know.

It's often family members who need to know how to quickly find information about care for elderly, retirement and senior activity ideas; and more for elderly activities, especially if you (like me) are caring for elderly parents. Sometimes events are new and sudden.

I know. I was in that exact situation with our elderly father. At age 93 he suddenly had to move back here from his home in Arizona. I soon became his primary caregiver, semi-retiring early myself (well, more like re-firing). Dad first started out here in assisted living. But since his health was very good, he actually ended moving in with me! And it's been a joy and an amazing experience.
