Indoor fun to enjoy this winter

Indoor GamesWhile there are always activities for residents at Kingston to take part in, sometimes you just like to create your own fun. For those moments, here are some fun activities any resident can enjoy right in their own room.

Cup Stacking

This is a great way to improve hand-eye coordination. This game can be as easy or changing as you make it based on how many cups you use. Couples who live in our assisted living and independent living communities can even have a contest to see who can stack their cups the quickest.

Card Games

A deck of cards can supply hours of entertainment thanks to the endless number of games you can play. Euchre, Rummy, and Hearts are always popular choices among residents, but learning a new game can always be fun, too.

Exercises

Many residents in our senior living communities are always looking for new ways to stay in shape. With the assistance of some common household items, you can improve your muscle strength and balance with simple exercises such as step-ups, lunges, knee extensions and other simple exercises.

Word Games

Classic word games such as Scrabble and crossword puzzles are a great way to expand your cognitive thinking skills. Best of all, these types of games can be played against others (such as Scrabble) or by yourself (crossword puzzles). You can let your mood decide which direction you want to take.

In addition, each Kingston residence offers a variety of activities for you to enjoy each day. Talk to the staff at your community to see which events are taking place today!
