Celebrate Spring with a Loved One in a Senior Living Community

Celebrate Spring with a Loved One in a Senior Living Community

Spring fever is here! Welcome the season with fun activities to share with your loved one in a senior living community. Besides having fun, spring activities can help improve health and well-being, too. Staying active and engaged boosts mood, enhances mental health, and can reduce feelings of isolation for your loved one.

Planting flowers

Gardening is a fun activity for families with a loved one in a senior community. Everyone can get involved with planting and enjoy watching their plants grow. One easy activity is to grow a pineapple from a pineapple top. Or plant seeds in small pots or even paper cups. Houseplants and patio gardens can brighten a small space and provide a sense of purpose for seniors. Marigolds and begonias are known not only for their colorful flowers but also for their ease of growing—great for kids, too!

Enjoying nature

Spring is an ideal time to get outside and enjoy nature. Flowers are blooming and birds are singing. Take nature walks and bird watching to the next level by creating a scavenger hunt or a bingo card. Kids, parents, and grandparents can engage their senses and hone their powers of observation while enjoying some friendly competition.

Celebrate the season

Escape the winter doldrums with a social gathering. A tea party offers an opportunity for a loved one in a senior living community to get dressed up, eat petite sweets and sandwiches, and socialize with loved ones. Fancy cups and plates (even paper ones!) and a pretty tablecloth can make a simple tea party feel extra special. A picnic offers a more casual celebration. Pack up a variety of sandwiches and salads for a delightful picnic on the lawn. Spring is the perfect time for seniors to get outdoors before the heat of summer.

Fresh and bright

Bring in the freshness of the season with crafts that embrace spring colors, like dyeing Easter eggs or making a cheerful wreath for your loved one’s door at the senior living community. You and your senior loved one can even combine crafting with gardening or nature adventures by decorating plant pots or pressing flowers. Creative pursuits keep senior minds active, enhancing cognitive and memory functions, and provide quality experiences for the entire family.
