Activities to activate seniors

Activation activities for seniors are aimed not only at providing entertainment, but more importantly at maintaining and improving their health. Developing interests and actively building relationships during activation activities helps prevent social isolation and has a direct impact on mood, comfort and, consequently, quality of life.
