Now that summer is officially here, there are many things you one can look forward to. With the warmer weather, longer days, and endless vacations, it may be a bit difficult to determine which activities are safe, yet fun for seniors. Whether it be at a retirement community such as Emerald Gardens or in the Northern Alberta area, there is always something for seniors to do this summer.
Here are 4 summer activities for seniors at a Northern Alberta retirement community:
Going for a walk
With the longer summer days, you can move your daily exercises outdoors by taking a stroll outside the Northern Alberta retirement community. Going for a walk is one of the simplest ways you can get exercise without it being too physically demanding.
Reading a book
No more staying indoors when you can read a good book outside under the sun while enjoying the fresh air. It’s the perfect summertime activity if you want to do something by yourself. Just remember to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Having a picnic
One of the best parts about summer is that there are plenty of activities seniors can do with their friends or family members, such as having a picnic at a Northern Alberta park or beach. This is a great way to spend time with your loved ones while you enjoy some good food and fun activities and games.
This is usually an activity most seniors look forward to during the summer as it is something they are very proud of when their flowers and vegetables begin to grow. Engaging in this activity helps seniors get their vitamin D intake for the day while also reducing risks of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
