Holiday Outings for Elderly Seniors
The holiday season has well begun, and to get your elderly loved one in the spirit, here are some fun outing ideas for everyone to enjoy!
Enjoy a Holiday Dinner at Your Local Diner
There are many diners on Long Island that offer festive menus and decor. Named by Newsday as one of the top spots for entertaining holiday guests, the Oconee Diner in East Islip will not disappoint. With over-the-top holiday decorations, you’re elderly loved one will not only enjoy a festive meal but will feel the holiday warmth.
See a Holiday Classic Movie
Just by doing a simple Google search or inquiring at your local movie theatre, you should be able to find many of your favorite holiday classics that are playing now through New Year’s Day.
Attend a Craft Fair
Indoor craft fairs not only give you the option to buy holiday gifts, but many also have holiday foods to enjoy as well as entertainment.
Go To The Mall
While the mall can be crowded during the holiday season, it can also be a fun place to get your holiday shopping done. If your elderly loved one may have mobility issues, it’s important to ensure you have a wheelchair or can to help them move around comfortably. It’s also best to go during the weekday than on a busy Saturday to avoid the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
Take a Walk or Drive Through the Neighborhood
Grab a cup of hot cocoa to go and walk or drive around your neighborhood to take in the holiday decorations. Not only is it a warm and cozy way to enjoy the holiday season, but you’ll also get to spend some quality time with your loved one as well.
