Comfort Home Care had been a health care solution for seniors in the Rockville, MD, area for over two decades. Quality care for seniors is our number one priority. But we also understand that seniors need to have some fun too!
In our last blog, we discussed five senior-friendly activities for fall. Today, our curated list continues with even more fun activities for seniors to enjoy this autumn season.
Plant Some Fall Veggies
As fall approaches, it’s the perfect time to start planning your next garden. You can get started with some easy-to-plant veggies like bok choy or brussels sprouts that will be ready by early spring!
There are also plenty more fresh produce options if you have space in your yard. Beets, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, leeks, lettuces, onions, peas, radishes, snow peas, spinach, swiss chard, and turnip seeds are available now. So make sure not to miss out on these nutritious foods when they’re at their peak flavor.
Decorate for the Season
Our loved ones mean the world to us, so it’s important to find ways to spend quality time together. One terrific way to do this is by crafting together. Not only will you get to spend meaningful time together, but you’ll also get to spruce up your home with some seasonal decor.
You could create an autumn wreath for your front door, paint pumpkins in varied sizes to dress up your table or get started on crocheting a personalized holiday gift for someone special.
Plan a Date
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to lose touch with the people who matter most to us. With everyone leading such busy lives, it can be hard to find time to reconnect with old friends and extended family. However, this can be the perfect opportunity to reach out and reconnect with those we care about. By scheduling a date or inviting them to meet up at a local coffee shop or restaurant, you can make the time to catch up and fill them in on all that’s been going on with you. This is a fantastic option for seniors receiving in-home care in Rockville, or any location.
Put Together a Puzzle
As anyone who has spent an afternoon working on a puzzle knows, there is something both relaxing and satisfying about the activity. Working on a puzzle can have a meditative effect, reducing anxiety and promoting calm. And when the puzzle is completed, it can provide a sense of accomplishment and pride.
Online retailers like Amazon carry a wide selection of puzzles featuring autumn scenes, from tranquil forests to busy city streets that can be delivered right to your door.
