- Dec 12, '11 by Not_A_Hat_PersonWhen I worked in Assisted Living, the most popular activity was Free Fishing Day, when the state allowed fishing without a license. Other popular activities included Wii golf and music programs (except one very bad recorder/guitar duo). One man who had lived in the boonies all of his life loved peeling potatoes and shooting the breeze with the kitchen staff.

I think just finding out what they like to do and offering it. Also just getting them outta their room and into a place where others will be would help!
