To bring pleasant emotions – occupation interesting, but troublesome. However there is a category of people for whom positive impressions are very necessary – pensioners. Especially even the simplest actions and bagatelles are capable to please them.
Gifts for holidays
It seems that native pensioners already need nothing. Shelves are filled with various knickknacks, cases burst with gifts of last years, and many treat new technologies with mistrust. In such situation it is difficult to choose what will be able to please people.
However this impression is very superficial. Pensioners – it is frequent ordinary people and the most usual bagatelles can please them. For example, a new plaid, throw pillows or a modern blind to the bathroom. So household objects will change appearance of rooms, will make it cozier.
Young people seldom pay attention to household things. However for pensioners sometimes it is difficult to go and choose new things for change of an interior. Please old men with useful and functional products.
Joy will be brought also by the bagatelles old, expensive to heart issued in a new way. For example, get dusty photo albums and restore them. Or move pictures to new modern "storages". Place some of them in a beautiful framework and place/hang out on the apartment. Be not afraid to ship pensioners in the present a few. Present them the computer or the tablet. That they did not lag behind life, hold a master class in use of the gadget, emphasizing the advantages concerning them life. For example, an opportunity to register in policlinic through online services or to check favourite comedies at any time.
Daily small pleasures
Pensioners often appear in the isolated conditions. Life around promptly changes, all hurry, are afraid of something not to be in time. The youth seldom thinks of the senior generation. People on pension quite often suffer from loneliness. Therefore it is possible to return joy to their life, having paid more attention. Listen to stories from the past, play cards or checkers, discuss present problems. Be not afraid to share also the problems: for past life the pensioners saw a lot of things therefore are capable to give a practical advice.
Communicating with pensioners, listen carefully to them and do not interrupt. Psychologists do not advise to hurry aged people: their brain works in the usual mode, however the accumulated experience forces to consider answers longer.
The ticket for any concert, performance or exhibition will become a pleasant surprise. However the repertoire should be chosen classical: not everyone will understand and will correctly estimate modern interpretation of the familiar play. The visit of theater will become more pleasant if you are able to keep them the company. A great way to please "young" pensioners the permit to rest in unusual time will become: in the fall or in the winter. Also in this case the subscription on a Spa procedure or a visit of beauty shop will be to the taste. Male pensioners for certain will approve a subscription for the magazine/newspaper of favourite subject, tickets for sports competitions or the gift certificate from shop of their hobbies.
