 Planning an event for senior citizens can be tricky especially if you do not belong to their age group. But if you are close to your parents, grand parents or uncles and aunts you can find different ways to make arrangements for such an event. Usually people become more emotional and touchy when they reach their retirement age and require extra attention. So if you are given the task of arranging an event for them you should know a few things about people of that age group before arranging the event. So before arranging any event like a reunion, a retirement party or even golden jubilee anniversary of a couple note down a few things and make the arrangements accordingly.

  • Search for good and well reputed event Rental Company so you can get good quality equipment for the event. You can find plenty of them on the internet. It would be better if you select the service near you.
  • Having a theme for a party can make it more attractive and interesting, but it is very obvious that you do not need to have a very adventurous and different theme. You need to create a decent and sophisticated ambiance for the gathering but it should not be too dull and boring. So go for a suitable theme. For example you can pick a theme of an old Hollywood movie of their era.
  • Although senior citizens are usually not very busy and have plenty of free time but it would still be better to arrange their event during the day so they can wind up early and go home to rest.
  • Venue should be nearby so they can reach the place easily in time.
  • Your event rental company may have stylish and well designed furniture but for senior citizens comfort comes first. Make sure that the sofas and chairs are comfortable enough for them.
  • There should be an adequate number of tables available with their seats so the guests do not have to look for a place put their belongings like purses, hats etc.
  • Keep the age group in mind before selecting the menu. Most seniors are not permitted to have rich or spicy food, so select food for them accordingly.
  • While serving alcohol keep an eye on the guests and make sure nobody gets more alcohol than they should.
  • Games can make any party more enjoyable; you can arrange bingo for the guests. ‘Play name that tune’ would also be a good option for them. You can play the music of an old song from their teenage era and let them guess the song. This will take them back to their days of youth.
  • Always keep medical help readily available when you arrange such an event, because excitement can sometimes cause medical emergencies in seniors.
