Watching TV or a movie is something we often do with friends and family – why not do it with your older adult? It’s another way to spend time together without them feeling the pressure to make conversation.
If you have a laptop computer or tablet device and subscribe to a service like Netflix, you could watch whatever you like on-demand.
Ask them what they’d like to see – perhaps there are older movies or shows they’d love to watch again. Or, maybe there are current shows you know they’d love to see. No matter what you watch, it’s a great way to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
The film chosen could even be watched in multiple smaller sittings to allow for more flexibility in your day, and it will keep the resident excited everytime you come back to continue where you left off.
