Officially, the first day of spring is March 20th but you plan a few things to ensure your senior loved one gets to enjoy the beautiful season. Everyone waits for winter to be over and your elderly loved ones are no exception. As the weather warms up, you have the perfect excuse to get your senior outdoors. The Sun, fresh air, and improving mood is an excellent opportunity for your senior to be more active.
Here are a few spring activities to do with your loved one.
There are plenty of ways to be active and get some exercise in the fresh Spring air. Take your elderly loved one out for a walk. If they can’t walk, seek a wheelchair-friendly path. Even sitting out of the house in the fresh air is good. If your senior loved one is more mobile, yoga or bicycling are great activities to foster overall well-being.
Enjoy a meal outdoors on your deck or patio with your elderly loved one in the Spring air! You could even go for an outing or picnic, if possible.
Gardening is not only enjoyable but also a great way for seniors to stay active. It is also an engaging activity where they have something to look forward to, every day.
Bird watching is another great option that brings peace and joy. Get your senior loved one a pair of binoculars and a book on birds. Enjoy as you identify various birds.
As the weather gets warmer, walk down together to the local farmers market, or visit music events or craft fairs.
