TikTok isn’t just for your teen anymore. The platform takes all ages by storm, and seniors are no different. Our assisted living facility in Deforest has been browsing the social media platform, and many people are sharing recipes, gardening tips, and even exercise routines. There is also plenty of content to make your loved one giggle and can be an instant mood booster.
There are millions of accounts to search through, and the best way to find your senior’s particular interest is to go through TikTok’s “Discover” page to follow your particular interests. In the meantime, if you are new to TikTok, our Deforest assisted living facility recommends these four seniors who have been racking up the views!
This account was started by a “mama” and her grandson. It was a way for them to spend time together at the pandemic’s beginning. They entertain 1.2 million followers as they dance in the kitchen, making silly videos and showing off their travels. They spread love and positivity to the world while spending quality time together.
Looking to smile today? Look no further than Grandma Great; she fills her account with silly jokes, advice, and heartwarming stories. She lets viewers know that it is okay to have a hard day. If you live at a Deforest assisted living community, we know that sometimes you have hard days. She reminds them to have faith, be grateful and patient, and keep working on their goals. Her husband often makes cameos to lighten the mood.
