What To Do In SingaporeThis Christmas For Seniors

by | Nov 28, 2023 | Lifestyle & Wellness, Lifestyle habits

You might not get snow or reindeers, but Christmas in Singapore is as big as any other celebration during the year. This is the season for families to enjoy together and especially so for seniors. Partaking in festive activities could be a way for seniors to bond with each other and also with their caregivers

Christmas is a time of love and joy – the celebration of Christmas is important as it helps foster a sense of belonging, rekindles good memories and keeps feelings of loneliness and isolation at bay. This works wonders for one’s mental health, spending quality time and creating memories together.

Set sail on a Christmas Cruise

Start a new tradition with the biggest holiday cruise celebration at sea – taking a cruise holiday could be quite a stress free experience. There is usually less planning required for a cruise holiday as you can simply partake in the festivities on board and stuff yourself silly with the Christmas treats. 

We get the allure of cruises, and this may be especially so for senior citizens who have reduced mobility. Decks, public areas and tenders are designed to be as accessible as possible for guests with reduced mobility. Furthermore, it gives one a peace of mind that when they are tired, they can easily find a spot to rest in contrast to travelling to somewhere new. Do check out Royal Caribbean Cruises for some good deals for your next cruise getaway.

This Christmas, there would be 3 stunning Christmas villages along the entire stretch – Shaw House Urban Plaza, Plaza Singapura and Ngee Ann City for one to enjoy a myriad of festive activities. 

There is definitely something for everyone – kick start your evening by catching the NCC Command Band from Swiss Cottage Secondary School perform christmas tunes, snap pictures with Christmas mascots and fill your bellies with festive treats from the F&B trucks.

 

Conclusion

In this season of love and joy, we hope these Christmas events can bring families together and especially so for seniors, to unwind and create good memories through these activities.
