Happy National Picnic Month! August is a great time for weddings, family reunions and the perfect simple picnic. That goes for our elderly loved ones, too! Picnics are a great way to experience fresh air, feel the warmth of sunshine and take in the scent of the outdoors ― especially for our loved ones who may be living in a personal care or assisted living facility or nursing home. While there are pros and cons to consider when planning outdoor events, with the right preparation, the pros can greatly outweigh the cons.

Choosing to take your senior loved one on an outdoor picnic can help to stimulate their senses and lift their spirits. Plus, a picnic is a great way to encourage your loved one to enjoy food and to promote the social interaction that comes with shared mealtimes. You can also invite them to get involved with the preparation, such as making sandwiches or shredding lettuce for a salad.
