During a humanitarian crisis, many older people's vulnerabilities make their survival challenging.

When the war started, many older people were separated from their families. Many were cut off from services and also suffered from physical and psychological distress.

Whenever a country is at war, senior citizens are at risk because they cannot get the care they need. That is why it is very important to ensure their health during the war.

Here are some ideas you can consider to give back to your elders and make their lives a little more colorful.

Spend Time with Them

It is a harsh reality that many folks who live in a care home have very few visitors. That's the biggest reason the seniors feel lonely, which takes a toll on their physical and mental health.

Especially in wartime, they need someone who can spend time with them, this is where you come in. Spend time with them, and teach them new things like using technology and smartphones. That will be a great help to divert their minds from the conflict situation.

Listen to Them

When seniors live alone during a difficult situation, life becomes hard for them. The best way to support them is by listening. You may not believe it, but this is the most effective way to improve their mental health. Also, you might learn a thing or two from their experience.

Join Them in Fun Activities

Elderly people love having fun. For them, kindness is essential and so is fun. During war days, the best thing you can arrange for them is to have fun activities just like any normal child.

Arrange a dance club, teach them handcraft or take them on a walk at the local center to refresh their minds and keep their bodies fit.

Do this and you it will all be fine.
