Although mobility may be a concern, there are plenty of adventures and events that cater to wheelchairs and other devices.
Summertime Activities For Seniors
Here are a few summertime social activities that are perfect for your senior loved one’s health, happiness, and wellbeing.
Check Out A New Farmer’s Market
Farmer’s Markets serve as great excuses to get outside and enjoy the beautiful summer weather with your senior loved one. They are also the perfect social event as you can easily bring your friends, siblings, and grandchildren with you to pick fresh fruits or vegetables together.
If you’re interested in extending your day, consider choosing a fun, new recipe that compliments your selection of organic food.
Check Out Online Videos For Inspiration
If the weather is too hot outside and you’re interested in cooking up something new, see what you can find on popular video websites like YouTube. Search for a recipe that’s of interest to you or browse seasonal lists for inspiration.
Eat outdoors at a fancy restaurant
If shopping for groceries and preparing new meals doesn’t sound appealing, there are always new restaurants opening throughout Beaverton and the greater Portland community. Swing by SW Center St. in Beaverton or W. Burnside St. in Portland on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to see what type of new restaurants are open.
Not only is getting a nice meal together a well-deserved treat, but it’s also ideal for spending quality time together.
Plant an herb garden
Gardening is an easy way to get outdoors, exercise, and can be a great way for your senior loved one to receive a personal sense of gratification when their herbs or vegetables sprout. If you have never grown a garden before, check out popular websites like Almanac.com or Gardeners.com for helpful tips and advice.
Go For A Hike or Check Out A New Park
Oregon is full of beautiful parks, historic landmarks, and offers thousands of hiking trails that accommodate seniors. If you have a few hours available, take your senior loved one to one of the many popular trails in the area like Cooper Mountain Nature Park or Tualatin Hills Nature Park.
Enjoy Local Events
Whether it’s sporting games, popular attractions, or summer festivals, checking out fun, local events are excellent for your senior loved one’s mind and health. Consider bringing a few options to your senior loved one’s attention and letting them decide what you do.
Plan A Fun Family Picnic
If the sun is out, there’s never a bad time to plan a family picnic in the park or one of the hiking trails mentioned. Pack a delicious, healthy meal and make sure to bring along a comfortable blanket, sunscreen, and perhaps playing cards or binoculars to check out the scenery.
