Outings and bus rides

Outings and bus rides

Many seniors tend to stay indoors due to their physical limitations or lifestyle changes. Getting out and about with a wheelchair can seem like a tremendous burden, and a lack of a regular job erases any essential need to get outside regularily.Outside activities.According to the Elder Care Alliance, regular time outdoors increases seniors’ level of vitamin D, which helps eliminate joint pain, inflammation, and diabetes. Plus, being around other people can significantly improve their mental well-being.
Some other benefits include:

  • Improved immune system
  • Quicker recovery time from an illness
  • Reduced stress
  • Safe exercise
  • Companionship

Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.
