As the calendar turns to a new year, it’s time to start thinking about how to celebrate it. Celebrating the new year is a great way to bring some fun and joy into the lives of those living in senior assisted living communities. Here are some fun and creative ideas for New Year’s celebrations in assisted living communities.
Host a New Year’s Eve Party
A New Year’s Eve party is a great way to ring in the new year and get senior community living residents in the spirit of celebration. Encourage residents to dress up, bring a dish to share, and dance the night away. Have a DJ or band come in to provide music and entertainment. Bring in some party favors like hats, noisemakers, and confetti to make the atmosphere festive.
Throw a Group Game Night
Games are a great way to get everyone involved in the festivities. Purchase a variety of board games and card games and encourage residents to team up and play together. Have some snacks and drinks on hand and make sure everyone has a good time.
Hold a Karaoke Night
Everyone loves karaoke and it’s a great way to get senior community living residents up and moving. Have a karaoke machine on hand and a selection of classic and modern songs to choose from. Encourage residents to take turns singing and have a dance floor set up to get everyone moving.
Host a Movie Night
What better way to celebrate the new year than with a movie night? Choose a classic movie that everyone can enjoy and make sure to have plenty of popcorn and snacks on hand. Make sure the movie is appropriate for all ages and that everyone has a great time.
Have a Craft Night
Get creative and have a craft night. Have a variety of craft supplies on hand and encourage residents to make something special to celebrate the new year. Have a contest and have everyone vote on the most creative project.
No matter how you choose to celebrate the new year in an assisted living community, make sure to keep it festive and fun. The new year is a special time of year and should be celebrated with joy and laughter.
