Warm weather is finally here in Nashville. That means we can start enjoying our time outdoors with our seniors! We make this a lot easier for you to do this season with a great home care plan for your senior.
Want to make the most out of the outdoors with your senior this season Take a look at our 4 favorite ways to spend time outside!
Walk Around the Neighborhood
Maybe your senior might like a stroll around their neighborhood! This can be fun to be active and chat with your loved one without making a big trip. Make sure you know the area well enough to plan for sidewalk endings or making an early trip home.
Visit Nearby Parks
Of course, visiting parks and reservations is a great way to get outdoors! Whether you have access to miles of different trails, or you want to relax on a bench in a smaller park – These are great places to walk and talk with your senior while taking in nature.
Looking for a local park?
Visit Gardens and Museums
Whether you’re in a big city or the suburbs, there is likely a garden or museum near you! Art museums and botanical gardens in particular almost always have outdoor exhibits and installations during the warmer seasons. It’s a great time to explore and learn something new with your senior!
Have Lunch Outside
If you senior doesn’t want to go anywhere, you can enjoy lunch right outside the home! In the backyard, on a patio, or with views from a balcony! Not everything has to be a trip – Your senior’s mood can improve just from soaking up a bit of sunshine.
Not lunch time yet? That’s okay! You can always grab a deck of cards or your senior’s favorite board game instead. Playing games and making memories is so much more fun outdoors and in the sun!
We make sure life doesn’t have to change too much with Home Care Assistance. With our individualized home care plans, we allow your senior to keep up with their active lifestyle, all while aging comfortably in their own home.
