With age, health complications begin to creep in, and it is common to see a senior suffering from a serious illness or undergoing surgery on occasions. Playing games such as Bingo and other age appropriate games can help such seniors recover faster or have shorter stays at hospitals. The games also reduce the depression levels of seniors in the hospital, which works to favor their speed of recovery. Most seniors participate in the Metro Richmond Senior Games and the Virginia Senior Games, which do wonders for their health.
When people learn something new, the chances are that they will try to do what they have learned, especially if their learning was practical. This learning is great for seniors because their desire to try out new things will give them confidence and a drive to stretch their abilities beyond what they thought they could. The Shepherd's center of Richmond and S.U.C.C.E.S.S offer seniors various enrichment programs that help make them independent and creating support groups to help them in Self-programming.
Staying fit is a great way of ensuring that you remain independent, have high physical capabilities, and have excellent control of your energy levels. With old age, an individual's physical capabilities decline, but the effects are far much less for seniors who keep fit. Kinetic Potential has a wonderful fitness program for seniors, which is the same case with Sheltering Arms Fitness and Aquatic classes specially made to meet the needs of particular groups and seniors.

These choirs are a great place for seniors who want to grow their musical talent or just have fun singing with other seniors. The city of Richmond has senior programs that have various activities including learning the different kinds of dancing.

Many other interaction forums are available through the various Senior Citizen Programs available.
