Neighborly Home Care Reminds Bala Cynwyd Seniors to Get Outdoors for Health

Home Care Outdoor ActivitiesMay 3, 2017 – Ardmore, PA – Spring is here, and that brings opportunities for seniors to get out and about in the sunshine and fresh air! As a provider of elderly home care in Bala Cynwyd, Ardmore and other Main Line communities, Neighborly Home Care advocates outdoor senior activity, because numerous studies have indicated that doing so can be highly effective in improving senior health and slowing the onset of age-related diseases. A recent University of Alabama at Birmingham study covering over 16,000 participants showed that even simple exposure to sunlight significantly helps improve cognitive function in seniors. Additionally, sunlight exposure also helps combat depression and reportedly boosts levels of happiness.

Neighborly Home Care in Bala Cynwyd encourages seniors – along with family members – to enjoy the spring outdoors.  

Outdoor Springtime Activities for Seniors

  • Visiting local parks and nature trails for walks.
  • Going fishing.
  • Taking in local tourist attractions, historical sites, and sporting events.
  • Visiting a plant nursery.
  • Going on picnics.
  • Doing light spring cleaning around the house.
  • Visiting local farmer’s markets, which also allows seniors to select fresh, healthy food.
  • Planting a small outdoor garden, such as an herb garden.
  • Bird watching, or bird-feeding at parks. 
  • Dining at outdoor cafes or restaurants.
  • Patronizing local outdoor theater or music shows.

A good mindset is an important element in remaining healthy while aging. Social interaction is also important and outdoor activities offer great opportunities for spending time with elderly loved ones.
