The Power of Vision Boards

By Roz Jones

As we age and our loved ones continue to age, it’s important to keep our minds active and engaged. One way to do this is by creating vision boards with our aging loved ones. Vision boards are a great way to encourage creativity, conversation, and connection. Plus, they’re a lot of fun to make!

What is a Vision Board?

A vision board is a collage of images, words, and phrases that represent your dreams and goals. The process of creating a vision board helps you to clarify what you want in life and gives you a roadmap to achieve it.

Why Vision Boards are Important for the Elderly

As we age, it’s easy to become disconnected from our dreams and goals. Creating a vision board can help your aging loved ones reconnect with their passions and remind them of what’s important to them. The act of physically putting together a board also helps to keep their minds active and engaged. And finally, working on a vision board together can be a great way to start conversations and build connections.

How to Create a Vision Board

The first step is to gather supplies. You’ll need a large piece of poster board or foam core, scissors, glue or tape, magazines, and any other materials you want to use (markers, crayons, etc). Once you have your supplies gathered, sit down with your loved one and begin going through the magazines, cutting out images and words that represent their dreams and goals. Encourage them to be creative and have fun with it! Once they have a good selection of images and words, help them arrange them on the poster board or foam core. Once they’re happy with the arrangement, glue or tape everything down. Hang their finished vision board in a place where they’ll see it every day as a reminder of their dreams and goals. 

Creating vision boards with your aging loved ones is a great way to encourage creativity, conversation, and connection. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! Follow the steps above to get started. Who knows—you might just discover some dreams and goals that you share!
