Additional games and activities for Nursing Home Residents:

Bingo!
Wheelchair bowling.
Simon Says.
Sing-a-longs.
Wheelchair races.
Manicure parties.
The “list anything” game. For instance, list all the animals you can think of, or birds, or cars, or states, or?
Memory game. For instance, “Who wants to tell a special birthday story?” Or, “A wedding story.” You can choose anything they might remember.

In Closing, please make sure you do not over exert the nursing home residents. This is for circulation and fun, not for losing calories! And having fun is what you are there for!
