Fall Fun for Seniors and Live in Senior Care
The fall season is officially in full swing. The harvesting has begun and the pumpkin spice lattes are being served. It’s time to get ready for the cooler weather by pulling out the warmer clothing items and putting away summer attire. While we may feel sad to pack away summer; it is refreshing to breathe in the crisp autumn air and sit around the fire for additional warmth at night.
There are many ways to celebrate the autumn season arriving. Fall fun for seniors includes visiting local orchards. The apple picking season is here; so fresh apples are a must in every household. If your senior loved one is an avid baker, fresh apples lead to delicious pies!
Many pumpkin patches hold events to draw in more patrons during October. Pumpkins are great for carving and painting with grandparents and can bring out some creativity in the designing process. Pumpkins patches usually host tractor rides, corn mazes, and other farm-based activities. These festivities can provide fall fun for seniors and their families. Be sure to have access to seating and prepare for rest times as some excursions could be more tiring if the weather is warmer than expected.
An easy and convenient fall fun activity for a senior loved one is within walking distance. Suggesting a walk in the crisp autumn air around the neighborhood can bring some beautiful sights. With the leaves all changing bright colors of red, yellow and orange, the trees in the backyard and around town can be quite breathtaking. Take the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of fall!
Finally, a common theme for the fall season is football. Tis the season for Friday night lights and for Sunday, Monday and Thursday night football. You don’t have to be a huge football fan to be able to participate in the festivities that surround watching the game. It is also a fun activity to enjoy in person with local high school and college sports. Why not invite a senior football fan and take them to a game for a change in weekly events. The time spent together in the fall air is sure to bring some reminiscent moments and create new memories.
