Here are some summer activity ideas for seniors, even those with Mobility Issues

It’s that time of year when the outdoors beckon! Spending time outdoors is good for all ages, but especially beneficial if you are “getting up there” in years. It increases our vitamin D levels, which helps fight certain conditions such as osteoporosis, cancer, heart attacks and depression. Make getting outside one of your goals for the summer, spending less time in front of the television or computer. Just making the trip to attend an indoor function can have some of the same health benefits. The health and social benefits of staying active are plentiful. Of course, you want to keep summer safety in mind. Summer can bring extreme heat that will increase the risk of dehydration, heat stroke, and other health risks, so be sure to practice safety first.
