With summer in full tow, it’s hard not to get excited about the activities that are available this season. There’s hiking, swimming, and all sorts of outdoor activities that are available, but what about for seniors and the elderly? Because their bodies may not be physically able to endure such outdoor events, they may feel a little isolated from the norms of summer fun, but it doesn't have to be that way. There are many ways to enjoy the summer with elderly loved ones and here are some of them:
DIY is great for bonding with your senior loved ones. DIY (or do-it-yourself) can range from knitting to somewhat more complicated projects like photo magnets.
Take a stroll on the beach or a round in the park – Not only could this benefit your loved ones as a form of exercise and physical therapy, it’s also a nice time for catching up!
This takes literally no effort from both parties and it’s also a chance to let your loved one shine. Learn a little more about what it was like to grow up in a different time and make new memories at the same time!
