What makes bingo so popular with elders?

In order to pass the time on Thanksgiving Day while waiting for the dinner supper to be served, both children and adults in the family will take part in a variety of games and activities. The older people will decide to play bingo when the children are playing with their toys. Why do seniors favor bingo as a way to pass the time? This can be explained by the following reasons.

A chance to socialize. Bingo is a multiplayer game. People from different parts of the community join with each other to actually be in the same room and work on the same thing. While numbers are just being revealed, players can converse with one another. Even for the quiet elders, sharing a common passion and objective like winning Bingo makes interacting with others easier.

Fun for all ages. Bingo isn't merely a game for elderly people. In reality, a lot of younger women (between the ages of 18 to 35) play bingo. It's a fun game that the entire family can enjoy.

Health competition with a lucky twist. Bingo is undoubtedly mostly a matter of luck, but it doesn't prevent players from being competitive while playing and pleased when they win. Despite the fact that ability has a relatively small role in the final, it is an entertaining game that allows for friendly competition.

Amazing rewards. The infamous greatness of bingo rewards is well-deserved. Some bingo parlors reward winning players with paid holidays, large sums of money, and extravagant goods. Additionally, even if a local Bingo establishment does not award a reward, you will still be able to tell people about your accomplishments up until the next game.

A game for everyone. Due to the fact that bingo is an accessible game, players do not need to be on the move to participate. Wheelchair-bound seniors with physical limitations can indeed participate in the game. Even individuals who are just beginning to develop dementia will enjoy this game. Seniors don't have to worry about leaving anyone out when they gather their friends—young and old—for an entertaining game of bingo.

So, some of the explanations above are the reasons why Bingo is preferred by elders to fill their free time, and that also applies to spending free time on Thanksgiving.

Is there a meal that uses leftovers from Thanksgiving?

There will always be Thanksgiving leftovers. Due to the variety of foods prepared for Thanksgiving dinner, this is a common sight. Have you ever found eating leftovers from the same dish to be boring, though? If so, use the "Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole" recipe, which was adapted for leftovers from Thanksgiving.

Components required:

  • For the baking dish, use salted butter
  • 4 cups of leftover filling
  • 4 cups diced, leftover skinless turkey or rotisserie chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups of leftover green beans, cut finely
  • 1 1/2 cups of unused gravy
  • 3 cups of leftover mashed potatoes
  • a single big yolk
  • 1 cup of shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • Cranberry sauce for serving


  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees and place a tray in the lowest third of the oven. A 9 by 13-inch baking dish should be butter-coated on the bottom and sides. Place the crumbled stuffing in the baking tray and press to create an equal bottom crust.

  2. Distribute the turkey and green beans on top of the layer of stuffing. Add the gravy over top.

  3. In a medium bowl, mash the potatoes with the egg yolk and mix thoroughly.

  4. On top of the turkey layer, apply the mashed potato mixture. Add some shredded cheese on top.

  5. Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes with the foil covering. Remove the cap and continue baking for an additional 20 to 25 minutes, or until the surface is golden brown and crispy. Prior to serving, transfer it to a cooling rack and give it about 10 minutes to rest. Cranberry sauce should be served alongside the dish.

How does playing bingo improve seniors' mental agility and flexibility?

Bingo, a popular game among elders, turns out to have advantages that make it beneficial for elders to play. One of the benefits obtained is related to mental agility and flexibility. As you may know, it takes a lot of mental agility and awareness to remain in the game of bingo, which demands that players be cognitively alert and conscious of the numbers on their cards, and what the speaker is stating.

Actually, studies have revealed that with mental quickness, memorization, and the capacity to gather information from their surroundings, bingo participants proved faster and more reliable than non-Bingo players. It is also believed that the sustained mental stimulation bingo and other card games provide elders can enhance cognitive capacities. So, that explains why bingo can improve seniors' mental agility and flexibility for elders.
