Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love, affection, and the special connections we share with our loved ones. While the holiday is often associated with romantic gestures, it’s also a wonderful opportunity for seniors to express love and appreciation for their friends, family, and community. At Sterling Court Assisted Living in St. George, we believe that Valentine’s Day is for everyone, regardless of age or relationship status. That’s why we’ve put together a list of heartwarming and enjoyable activities tailored specifically for seniors.


Celebrating Love and Togetherness at Sterling Court


  1. Crafting and Decorating: Embrace the spirit of Valentine’s Day by gathering residents for a crafting session. Provide supplies such as construction paper, markers, stickers, and glitter, and encourage seniors to create their own Valentine’s Day cards or decorations. Crafting not only stimulates creativity but also fosters a sense of accomplishment and camaraderie as residents share stories and laughter while working on their projects.
  2. Valentine’s Day Tea Party: Host a festive tea party complete with heart-shaped cookies, delicate sandwiches, and an assortment of teas. Decorate the dining area with red and pink accents, and encourage residents to dress in their finest attire. As they enjoy delicious treats and engage in lively conversation, residents can reminisce about past Valentine’s Day celebrations and share stories of love and friendship.
  3. Love Letter Writing: Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to express heartfelt sentiments to loved ones. Set up a writing station with stationery, pens, and envelopes, and encourage seniors to write love letters or notes of appreciation to their family members, friends, or caregivers. For those who may need assistance, staff members can offer support and guidance to ensure that every message is heartfelt and meaningful.
  4. Romantic Movie Marathon: Set up a cozy movie screening area and treat residents to a marathon of classic romantic films. From timeless love stories to heartwarming comedies, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Provide popcorn, candy, and beverages for a complete movie-going experience, and encourage residents to snuggle up with blankets and pillows as they immerse themselves in tales of love and romance.
  5. Valentine’s Day Dance: Host a Valentine’s Day dance party complete with live music or a playlist of romantic tunes. Decorate the dance floor with twinkling lights and heart-shaped balloons, and encourage residents to dress up and hit the dance floor. Whether they prefer slow dances or lively jigs, residents can enjoy an evening of music, laughter, and socializing with their peers.
  6. Valentine’s Day Bingo: Put a festive twist on the classic game of bingo by incorporating Valentine’s Day-themed cards and prizes. Create bingo cards featuring images of hearts, roses, and Cupid, and offer prizes such as chocolate truffles, scented candles, or decorative mugs. As residents play and compete for prizes, they’ll enjoy a fun-filled afternoon of friendly competition and camaraderie.
  7. Photo Booth Fun: Set up a Valentine’s Day-themed photo booth complete with props such as heart-shaped sunglasses, feather boas, and oversized valentine cards. Encourage residents to strike a pose and capture memories with friends and loved ones. Provide instant prints or digital copies of the photos for residents to cherish and share with their families.
