One of my favorite activities that we've started up is "Try it Tuesday." With whatever Tuesday night activity is going on, our activity staff brings a special something that the most of the residents have never tasted--things like maple bacon cereal, pickle potato chips, banana Cheerios, or chicken and waffles cereal (which the residents really seemed to enjoy).
Trying something new is good for people of every age, but perhaps especially so for those of the older generation. Seniors have usually found what they do and don't like, and sometimes it's hard to step out of that box. But with a little encouragement in the form of an activity staff member, they can step out of the familiar --and maybe even find some new favorites!
