Spring is the season of rebirth, and with that comes new sites to see! It will be fun to take your senior outdoors this season and enjoy all that nature has to offer. We help make this easier for you to do with our great home care plans.

Check out our 4 favorite tips that will help you make the most of enjoying outdoor time with your senior this Spring!

Visit Your Local Parks

Parks make excellent places to enjoy the outdoors, whether you’re planning to walk a few miles or just make a quick loop around. This is the perfect time to walk and talk with your senior and enjoy nature at its finest.

Stroll Around the Neighborhood

If you don’t have a park nearby, or your senior doesn’t want to go too far from home, take a quick stroll around their neighborhood! Just make sure you have a plan in case the sidewalk ends, or your senior wants to head home early.

Take a Trip to Gardens and Museums

Gardens and museums make fun trips for everyone involved! There are usually outdoor exhibits and installations during the warmer weather months, and it’s a great opportunity to bond with your senior while learning something new.

Have Lunch in the Sun

If your senior isn’t up for going anywhere, you can have lunch right outside! Make it a picnic in the backyard or enjoy the views from a patio or balcony. You’ll notice your senior’s mood improve just by being outside.

Bonus Tip:

Bring more fun outdoors by playing your senior’s favorite board game or grabbing a deck of cards! Food is not a requirement for a good time soaking up the sunshine with your senior.
