How is your summer going? Hopefully, you have completed a good chunk of the activities that you planned. This is the season to go on vacation, enjoy the sun, and just have a good time. Unfortunately, many seniors end up dealing with isolation during the summertime. Their activity level might not be enough to keep up with what everybody else is doing. And they might be sensitive to the sun. If that is the case with your senior parents, here are a few things you can do to help them enjoy this summer.
- Stop in for a social visit. It can become so easy to only see Mom and Dad only when they need something. But take the time, on a regular basis, to let them know they are still good company. Create opportunities to sit back and relax with them.
- Take them out for brunch and a movie. They will enjoy the meal and the entertainment. It won't take up too much time and energy. And they will get to see one of the summer blockbusters they keep hearing about.
- Bring them on a quick getaway. Make sure the mode of travel is comfortable for them. Book accommodations that fit their needs. And plan activities that they can thoroughly enjoy without quickly tiring out.
You can likely think of many more ways to include Mom and Dad in your fun this summer. They will be so grateful that you thought of them and you will love spending time with them..
