There are many activities to make them busy, such as hobby classes, elderly club memberships or exciting games for seniors.  Performing arts such as dancing, singing, theatre, etc. give the elderly unbeatable enthusiasm and confidence. In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of performing arts and games for seniors.
