Spring is officially here, and it’s time to start putting thoughts of winter behind us. One of the best ways to celebrate the arrival of spring is to do things that take advantage of the warmer weather. This post talks about ways to celebrate spring with senior loved ones in your life.
During the winter, even in Southern California, the temperature outside can get chilly and make doing outdoor activities less appealing. With the arrival of spring comes warmer weather. Sit outside with your loved one and enjoy the fresh air and enjoy the trees and the flowers. Hummingbirds might make an appearance now that the weather is nicer. Consider putting a hummingbird or other bird feeder outside the window so that your loved one can enjoy seeing the birds all spring and summer long.
Have a Family Gathering
Spring is associated with holidays like Easter. But the good news is that you don’t need a specific holiday to have a gathering with friends or family. You can have one to celebrate the arrival of spring.
Now is the time of year to think about paring down and getting rid of items you might not have used in the past year. Donating, selling, and cleaning the house is harder for some people than it is for others. Use a spring cleaning as a way to reminisce, spend time together, and focus on eliminating areas where clutter is posing a safety hazard or is impeding functionality in the home.
Reach out to local hauling companies that serve Newport Beach, CA, to find one that takes jobs of any size and ask if they will take donations. Finding a reliable company that is willing to take small loads will make it easy to tackle cleaning projects one at a time.
Visit the Farmer’s Market or Watch Baseball
Spring marks the return of some local farmer’s markets. Encourage the senior in your life to go support local farmers by buying fresh produce and other handmade goods. Merchants will usually offer better prices than those found in a store or supermarket.
Baseball also returns with spring. If there are children in the family who play little league, T-ball, or another spring sport, it’s a great way to celebrate the season and get your loved one out in the fresh air.
Celebrating spring is just one way to engage the senior in your life. To keep them active and engaged all year long, consider hiring a companion caregiver.
