Assisted living facilities have an array of different amenities. From swimming pools to shuffleboard tables, facilities tend to offer activities and games that fit their residents. Each facility is different, so it is important to check with them to see what activities they have and more importantly what activities your loved one enjoys. Besides what is provided by the facility, individuals have a big part in what their loved ones do while living at an assisted living home. This means that you provide your own activities to do with your loved one. Whether it be scrapbooking or video calling distant relatives, you do not have to rely solely on what the facility offers. Be creative and communicate with your loved one. Doing so allows you to make your loved one more comfortable in a new place and continues to build your relationship with them. These activities are extremely important during the initial transition.
