While Livita offers its own activities, spring is a wonderful time to get your loved ones outside and out and about. If you or your loved one is struggling from being kept inside, here are five activities to get seniors interested in:


Gardening is one of the best activities for seniors to engage in as it promotes physical exercise and mental stimulation. Gardening also helps seniors connect with nature, which has a calming effect, reducing stress and anxiety. Plus, breathing in that fresh air and feeling the sun on their skin will always be a highlight of anyone's day.

Art classes:

Get creative and stimulate your inner artist by expressing yourself creatively through art classes. The classes can include painting, drawing, and sculpting, which can help stimulate the brain, improve fine motor skills, and reduce feelings of isolation. Art classes allow seniors to socialize and make new friends.

Music therapy:

Music therapy has been found to have several benefits for seniors, including reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. It also helps improve cognitive function, memory, and mood. Livita Retirement Home in Barrie provides music therapy classes for their residents, which can help them feel more relaxed and connected to their surroundings.

Fitness classes:

Staying active is essential for seniors, and Livita Retirement Home provides several fitness classes that cater to different levels of mobility. Seniors can engage in chair yoga, stretching, or low-impact exercise classes. Exercise helps seniors maintain their independence and mobility, and it also promotes good cardiovascular health.

Cooking classes:

This is a terrific way for seniors to learn new skills while having fun in a group setting. They can learn to prepare different meals, including healthy options, and they can also learn about different cuisines from around the world. It is a wonderful way to socialize while also enjoying the fruits of your labour!
