Motivating and Encouraging Seniors
Seniors are treasures of our society, but unfortunately, many seniors struggle with feelings of loneliness, inadequacy, and depression. Seniors who once managed successful careers and enjoyed busy family lives can find their lives seeming dull and empty after retirement and their family members have become busy with their own respective jobs and family responsibilities.
Fortunately, there are many simple ways to help seniors feel more connected, capable, and happier. According to an article from Psychology Today, five simple and significant ways we can help seniors are:
- Encouraging Few and Manageable Goals;
- Encouraging Affirming Self-Identify;
- Encouraging Technologies;
- Encouraging the Feeling of Usefulness; and
- Encouraging Adaptive, Flexible Coping skills.
