Elderly Care in Turnersville NJ
Even if your senior loved one requires senior care at home, it’s still important to make sure they get out of the house from time to time. Now that spring is here, it’s the perfect time t
o get outdoors to enjoy the beauty and great weather. If you’re stumped for good ideas, here are some exciting spring activities and outings you and your in-home care professionals can use to keep seniors active and social this spring.
Head to the Local Zoo
Many animals have babies in the spring, so it’s the perfect time to head to the zoo with your senior. If your senior has mobility issues, make sure you have a wheelchair on hand. It’s even possible to rent wheelchairs if needed. You may want to have an elder care professional go with you to assist with elderly individuals who have mobility issues.
Visit a Nearby Park
Another fun idea is to take your loved one to visit a nearby park, especially one where they can enjoy watching children pay. Children enjoy playing outdoors in the spring, and seniors will enjoy the excitement of watching kids laugh and play. It’s a perfect way to enjoy some sunshine and some interaction with others.
Enjoy an Outdoor Picnic
Whether you head to a park with the help of your senior care professional or you simply head to your backyard, a picnic is a perfect spring activity. It’s easy to pack up a picnic meal and take it outdoors. Your loved one will get to enjoy eating something healthy while getting a healthy dose of vitamin D in the sunshine.
Attend a Local Sporting Event
A local sporting event is another great idea for an excursion this spring. You can catch a professional game or head to a little league game in your area. Attending a sporting event also gives your loved one some time to socialize, something that is important for seniors, especially after being stuck indoors throughout the cold, winter months.
Do Some Bird Watching
Now that spring is here, the birds are chirping happily outdoors. Consider taking advantage of all the spring birds by doing some bird watching with your loved one. You can even work with your senior and your senior care professional to make a DIY bird feeder that will attract more birds to your back yard. Grab some binoculars and have some fun on the back porch or patio as you try to identify your backyard visitors.
The warmer weather has arrived and winter is over. Start taking advantage of the sunshine. Find ways to get your elderly loved one outdoors and involved in exciting activities that will boost their mood.

Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
