Four Ways to Welcome Spring When Living in a Senior Home

March 11, 2023

It is almost time for spring! The cold days of winter are coming to a close. While we appreciate all the seasons, spring brings feelings of renewal, fresh starts, and gratitude for better weather. When you live at a senior living home, such as Beacon Crest Senior Living, the staff will help celebrate spring with events, continued care, and daily activities. Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate the new season.

If you live in a senior living home, you will already have help keeping your apartment suite clean. Staff will prepare your meals, do your laundry, and provide deep cleaning for your space. You can add to the clean environment by spraying floral or fruit scents, diffusing oils, or simply wiping down the furniture. Don’t forget to open your windows and let that fresh air in!
When getting in a spring kind of mood, it can help to decorate your suite. Whether it be a fresh bouquet from the florist, DIY crafts for upcoming holidays, or changing out your artwork, fresh ideas can help you feel the lightness of spring. Are you not sure about crafting? Your senior living community will offer crafting events that guide you through the creation process step-by-step. Remember, the craft does not have to be perfect. The best part of crafting is having fun!
Would you like to see what your city has to offer? Why not attend a spring festival, a farmer’s market, or other events that celebrate the season? If you are unsure how to locate outside events, ask your senior living community activities director. Not only are they planning events for you to enjoy in your senior living community, but they can help find outside events. Who knows? Maybe there will even be a bus field trip planned to take you and your friends out for the day.
Whether it is Absent in the Spring by Agatha Christie, The Garden of Small Beginnings by Abbi Waxman, or The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, reading a book about spring can get you in the mood. Are you worried about access? Did you know your local library can place books on hold if they do not have what you would like at their branch? Not a huge fan of reading? What about listening to an audiobook? When you reside at a senior living home, such as Beacon Crest Senior Living, they provide bus trips to places like the library.
