Cinco De Mayo - Senior Involvment

Cinco De Mayo is always one of the most fun spring events. It is a great excuse for seniors to get festive with their family and friends.

Families and friends should take out their sombreros, shake the maracas and try to have some fun.

If you live in a senior community, enjoy the activities, food and participate in creating some of the decorations. If you are hosting friends or family at your house, you can decorate your house and begin cooking for the event.

Cooking is often correlated as a therapeutic activity for seniors. You can buy the ingredients for tacos and allow family and friends to make their own tacos when they come over. This is a fun way to allow everyone to participate and not cause the host role to be overly burdensome. If you have home care help, the home health aide can help organize all the supplies and assist in the cooking activities.

Any excuse to celebrate joyous occasions should be emphasized. Hope you all have a great weekend!
