Coloring books for seniors: far beyond cure for boredom

In News by Just Like Family / September 17, 2017

Adult Coloring books bring a lot of benefits for seniors. The coloring books might sound like a simple activity, but they can help with boredom and health. Some experts say elderly with dementia can improve information retention as well.

Time can fly when we are coloring, making it a perfect activity for anyone who wants to join the loved one. It’s very distracting and calming.

Buy a coloring book and a box with different colors of crayons and let your loved one try it!

Remember to find a quiet place with no sound distractions.

A playlist with no lyrics also can help to relax.


I tried several home care companies before but I wasn’t happy with them sending different caregivers all the time…Just Like Family has offered me the stability and consistency I needed for my dad to stay at home safe.

When I realized my mom’s Alzheimer is getting worse and she needs help I didn’t know where to start and what to do…but the people at Just Like Family gave me all the information I needed and since I started with them my mom is very happy and well taken care of.

What I like about Just Like Family’s Caregivers is that they are very caring and dependable so I trust them with my life.

The connection my parents have with their Caregiver is that of a close friend, not an employee that provides a service, so they can’t wait for the days when she visits them.

Paul and Leeanne are great to work with. They are professional, empathetic, kind and totally understood my needs. They have amazing staff that are kind, caring and respectful adhering to Covid protocols. They were there for me when I needed their assistance with my elderly mother. They answered all my questions and truly supported us.... Just like Family. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.
