Home Health Care in Newport Beach CA: Easy To Play Games For Teens and Seniors

Four Easy-to-Play Games That Grandparents and Teens Both Love

You want your mom and dad to find common ground with your teens.  You often have your teens with you when you go visit, but there’s little for them to do.  They stay on their phones or tablets, which makes your parents feel ignored.  Here are some games that teenagers love and that many elderly adults also truly enjoy.

Apples to Apples

Apples to Apples is a card game where players use the noun cards in their hand to answer the adjective card in play. The game is played in rounds with each player taking a turn as the judge.

The person closest to the answer wins. Questions are usually pretty abstract and ask things like how much does the heaviest sumo wrestler in the world weigh?

Would You Rather

In Would You Rather, teams work together to present their case on which of two options is best. Predicting the other team’s pick is how you work your way around the board. The situations are usually difficult and include things like having to decide between running 20 miles when the temperature is 68 degrees or running 8 miles when it’s 100 degrees.

When you and your teens cannot visit, your mom and dad can enjoy these games together or with their caregiver joining in. Hiring a home care professional ensures your parents have everything they need to age at home. A caregiver can drive them to stores and restaurants, help them prepare meals, or
