The fall season is nearly here, which means the leaves are changing and the weather is getting chillier. Enjoy the season with four fall activities that are perfect to enjoy with the older loved ones in your life.
Create fall-themed crafts
Crafting is a fun and easy way to pass the time on a chilly fall day. Best of all, arts and crafts activities can be enjoyed by all ages, from children to older adults. Some easy craft ideas include pressing flowers or leaves between heavy books or coloring fall-themed coloring pages. Painting pumpkins is also a safe and easy alternative to carving. If your loved one is in a senior living community, try bringing along a craft activity on your next visit for a fun family afternoon!
Take a fall foliage walk or drive
Now is the perfect time to get outside and admire the changing colors of fall. Many retirement communities have paved walking trails and benches perfect for enjoying the beauty of the season on a family walk.
Visit an apple orchard or pumpkin patch
Trips to apple orchards or pumpkin patches are a fall tradition that people of all ages can enjoy. From activities like hayrides to corn mazes, there’s something for everyone. Best of all, you can enjoy baking fall goodies using apples or pumpkins you find.
Enjoy fall games
As the weather grows colder, we spend more time indoors. While visiting your loved one in a senior living community, try bringing a card game or board game to play together. Fall is also football season, making it the perfect time to bundle up with a cup of hot apple cider and root for your favorite team with the family.
