Among elderly people, making bucket lists is a popular phenomenon. Simply put a list of all your aspirations or dreams that you wish to achieve in your life before you die is a bucket list.
We agree that using the bucket list will motivate older people to keep their lives busy and enthusiastic. This gives you the aim to achieve and to search for opportunities that can only be useful for overcoming isolation and loneliness. Let us have a deeper look:
