The arrival of Spring is often a cue to get back outside and enjoy all of the beloved outdoor activities you missed during the winter months. One of the wonderful things about retirement is being able to enjoy senior living activities any day of the week so you can fully enjoy those warm, sunny days when they pop up without having to play hooky from work.
At Northfield, we encourage our residents to get the most out of our independent living community by offering a beautiful setting for outdoor activities as well as a variety of senior living services to free up their time for the fun things in life. Give us a call today at 844.334.1490 to learn about how we help seniors enjoy their retirement years to the fullest.
Try Out New Senior Living Activities This Spring
Many people choose to hibernate over the winter and look forward to venturing out again when the temperatures rise. Why not try something new this spring? There are plenty of activities for active seniors to enjoy out in the fresh spring air and sunshine.
Here is some inspiration for ways to get active in the springtime:
- Go for a walk. Try to notice the signs that spring has sprung. See if you can spot chirping birds and more colorful scenery on your walk as plants and flowers begin to reemerge from their winter slumber.
- Do some gardening. This is a great way to get out in nature while adding some natural beauty to your home.
- Have a picnic. Small pleasures like this are often overlooked. When the weather is warm enough, why not take advantage of it by dining al fresco?
- Volunteer in your community. With the springtime comes new opportunities for volunteering. Outdoor festivals, farmer’s markets, animal adoption events, craft fairs, and bake sales can often use an extra pair of helping hands.
- Reconnect with your inner child. Do you remember the outdoor activities you enjoyed as a kid? Bring back that feeling of youthfulness by flying a kite or visiting a playground and going on the swings.
Use Senior Living Services to Free Up Your Time for Springtime Fun
One roadblock to enjoying leisure time is household chores. Cooking, cleaning, and laundry can take time away from getting outside and having some fun in the spring. You can reclaim your free time by taking advantage of senior living services in your independent living community that can help manage some of your household obligations.
Some of the benefits that senior living services may offer include:
- Dining services – You will not have to spend time cooking every meal unless, of course, you enjoy cooking. However, on those beautiful spring days when you want to get out and enjoy the weather, you can free up your time by taking advantage of dining services.
- Housekeeping services – You do not need to have any physical limitations to enjoy the benefits of housekeeping services. Knowing that someone else can help take care of keeping your house clean and orderly can give you the peace of mind to relax and fully enjoy those beautiful spring days.
- Transportation services – Car maintenance and repair can be an added hassle once you have settled into senior living. With our transportation services, you can give up car ownership commitment and rely on someone else to take you where you need to go.
