Activity Kit for Homebound Older Adults
In the initial weeks of the coronavirus crisis, the Leisure At Home activity kit has been distributed to tens of thousands of isolated older adults throughout Israel with much success.
JDC-Eshel and the Vatikei HaGalil Day Center are pleased to offer the activity kit in a digital format. It was developed to offer suggestions for activities that can be done while staying indoors, including exercises, games, trivia, quizzes, recipes and leisure activities.
An instructional video guides users through the use of the kit.
