Summer is a great time to spend getting to know your family better. Many families take this time to vacation, or just spend time together, relaxing, and enjoying outings close to home. If there is a member of your family that is a senior, then it is very important that you find ways to include them in your summer vacation time. Below we will discuss three ways to prevent your senior from feeling isolated this summer.
1. Include them: if it is possible to take the senior member of your family with you, then invite them to come along. Make sure they really feel wanted.
2. Alternatives: if you have planned a long vacation, and your senior is not able to attend, then give them other alternatives, such as joining a class, or attending a reading at the library.
3. Their choice: choose a day that you can let your senior decide what the family will do. This way, they will feel included, and will have fun doing what they love.
Finally, only you really know your senior, so try to get them involved in things that you know they will love. Do your best to get the process started with them. If you can walk them through the process of joining some type of group, they will be more likely to attend this group when you are away.
