Aging is a natural part of life. But as we age, it’s essential that we keep our bodies and minds active. Because should a senior citizen be limited to their home? This is why more and more senior centers are planning day trips for their residents. These trips help each and every senior citizen stay active in a way that’s fun and enriching. But planning of these trips can be hard for the coordinators. With that being said, here are some tips to having a successful day trip for your senior citizen residents:
- Plan Ahead- Senior trips should be planned a few months in advance, rather than at the last second. Choose dates that are not during a busy season and talk to your group of seniors about what times work best for them. Planning something quickly will only cause confusion and make the trip stressful.
- Packing- Most senior trips occur during the day. Popular trips include parks, museums, malls, and monuments that can be reached comfortably within a day. Encourage your group to pack lightly and dress accordingly for the weather. Determine if walkers or wheelchairs will be necessary on your trip.
- Medicine: A main part of growing older is the need for some type of medication. Go over everyone’s medical needs before your senior trips to make sure you know everyone’s condition and needs.
- Transportation: Charter a bus through Superior Tours. Our luxury buses and trained drivers will ensure your group will arrive to their destination on time and ready to start their adventure.
