Include Your Senior In Your Summer Fun

Adult-Daughter-Comforting-Mom-LR.jpgYou probably have so many things you want to do this summer. From the local festival to the faraway beach, you waited all year and you deserve it. While you are enjoying yourself though, think about the special senior in your life. They might not be able to match your physical activity level. But it is important that they enjoy the season and avoid isolation this summer. Here are a few things you can do that they will love.

  • Breakfast and a matinee show. It won't take up too much money, time, or energy. And summer is for blockbuster movies, so you don't have to worry about choices of what to see. 
  • A social visit at their place. Have you fallen into the trap of just going by when your loved one needs something? Let them know you want to spend quality time with them, just to chat or share a nice meal.
  • Take them on one of your trips. Keeping your senior in mind, choose a destination and itinerary that they can keep up with. They would probably love a weekend getaway or a simple day trip.
  • Find out what they want to do. Your dear one might already have a wish-list of things to do this summer. So before you rack your brain thinking of ideas, ask them what they would enjoy.

Summer can be fun for people of all ages, including seniors. So savor it this year, and be proud that you helped your senior to do the same.
