As we age, the social connects and contacts reduce. It is even more so in cases where there is restricted mobility in the elderly. There are lesser avenues for the elderly to meet and spend time with peers & other like-minded folks. This is where group activities can be of great relief for the elderly.
About Group activity:
Group activity is that platform for elders, to develop a positive attitude which gets reflected while sharing experiences and emotions. It is also an opportunity for them to re-involve in socialization and creating new friendships. Being part of a group of people who have similar experiences helps
Group members can share their strengths and help others in the group, which can boost self-esteem and confidence as well. This can have a Cathartic effect (Catharsis is the process of purification and purgation of emotions through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration) in which they share feelings and experiences with a group of people can help relieve emotional pain, guilt, or stress.
