3 Fun Fall Activities for Seniors


As temperatures start to cool and the air turns crisp, you or your senior loved one may be looking for fun activities to celebrate the fall season. There are so many ways to enjoy and celebrate this festive time of year, and we have compiled our three favorite activities for seniors to enjoy.

Visit Local Markets, Orchards, & Pumpkin Patches

The harvest season brings many ways to get out and enjoy beautiful weather while supporting your local community. Seniors can enjoy low-intensity activities like picking apples or searching for the perfect pumpkin. Craft fairs are also abundant this time of year and offer an excellent opportunity to enjoy browsing and seasonal treats like apple cider. Keep your senior loved one's mobility in mind when planning activities to ensure venues offer suitable accessibility.

Enjoy Some Baking

With all the delicious produce in peak season, baking is a perfect activity to celebrate fall flavors. The warm smells of apples and pumpkins are welcome as temperatures cool, and baking offers a great opportunity for seniors to share recipes and pass on family traditions. Once fall sets in, the holidays are just around the corner. Your senior loved one may enjoy the opportunity to perfect a new recipe for family get-togethers.

Decorate For the Season

The transition to spending more time indoors due to cool or rainy weather can be a great time to get crafty and decorate your senior loved one’s space for the season. From colorful leaves, to pinecones and pumpkins, nature offers many free or inexpensive ways to decorate. With a bit of inspiration, you and your senior can create affordable and beautiful decorations for a cozier, warmer living space.

Enjoying seasonal traditions and activities can be important for the health and well-being of seniors. At Ebenezer Senior Living, we think it’s important for seniors to stay active and engaged year-round, and we hope you enjoy these fun activities.
