I would advise all the, retired, elderly people to practice reading books, in whatever language they are comfortable with. I personally experianced that if one can read books, she might not require any one else to help him/her to spend his time. It is a good passtime. Also they can go to a local temple and listen to devotional songs. Also they can form a group of similar aged persons in the local park and spend time chatting. Youngsters can always give company to elderly people. They can want to hear stories from this aged and experienced people. they can take them for a walk or take them for a visit to a temple, church or mosque.

Reading is a good habit for all . One can gain great knowledge through good reading . However it could be difficult for old aged people to read due to eye problems . And regular visits to temples ; spending with similar aged people ... these are good ideas . We are living in a fast age . everyone is running for name and money . Now even old aged people are trying to earn some money by doing regular work - how sad . they have worked for about half of their life to earn money . Again during their end days also most of old aged people are going for earning money ...
