Companionship for Seniors – Fall Season Tips – Enjoy the outdoors

The weather is cooler but you should still take care to bring plenty of water and snacks, as well as suitable clothing and backups of clothes and supplies in case of a rapid weather change.

If the person you care for is unable to travel far consider doing an activity together that can help them remember positive memories from the past. This might be as simple as listening to music, or baking a pumpkin pie. If possible, open as many windows and doors in the house, so you can enjoy a refreshing cool breeze.

When making snacking decisions try to balance in tasty treats in smaller portions along with important fruits and vegetables only available this time of year. Beyond Pumpkin Pie a quick Google search will reveal many pumpkin based treats that are easy to make from cookies, to coffee or even ice cream.
