Senior Care Southern Highlands, NV: Talking Points That Engage Everyone

COVID-19 is still on many people’s minds this year. Large holiday gatherings are cautioned against in some areas, but families may still hold smaller gatherings. You don’t want your parents to be alone during the holidays. 

You’re planning smaller get-togethers. How do you make sure that these smaller parties go well? How do you ensure people have plenty to talk about while avoiding topics like politics or the pandemic that may cause tension? 

Buy Games and Educational Products Centered Around Conversations 

Several games and educational products center around conversations. One to consider is Kids Conversation Starter. The game has a deck of cards with a question. The card is set out on the table and people take turns sharing and discussing their answers. Questions include simple topics like, “What is your favorite food?” or “What is the best thing that happened to you today?” 

Spark is a game for all ages that’s similar. Players draw a card and read the question out loud. People then discuss their answers. Questions range from “What is the most meaningful thing you’ve ever done?” to “Describe one of your more memorable dreams.” 

For games, consider Spontaneous. Players write down five “trigger” words. The player who is “it” picks a trigger word. Other players must sing a few words from a song that has that word in the line. Some spaces on the board require you to play a card, too. Follow the instructions on the card. If you complete the task, you get to move additional spaces. 

Wordplay For Kids is a card game where you draw a card that has a rule listed. Everyone at the table must come up with as many words that fit that rule. For example, the rule is “Foods that start with TA.” Appropriate answers would be “taffy,” “tapioca,” “Tabasco sauce,” and “tart.” Each appropriate answer scores the person a point. 

Caregivers Can Make Social Visits When You’re Not Close Enough 

When you’re unable to visit your parents, who is around to help them with chores or take them shopping? Are they able to drive or do they have to wait until you’re in town to escort them to a doctor’s appointment? Senior care services offer the solution your family needs. 

Senior care aides help with housework, meals, laundry, and organization while providing much-needed friendship. You can also have caregivers drive them to stores, businesses, and medical offices. Learn more by calling a representative.
