Outdoor Memorial Day Activities

Nursing home residents enjoying the Georgia sunshine and fresh air while proudly sporting the red, white, and blue.

We love giving our residents the opportunity to spend time outdoors, in the fresh air and sunshine. It truly reinvigorates them and sets a brighter tone for the day (or week!). Fortunately, our balcony offers us the chance to do that often and easily, making outdoor activity time accessible to all!

On Memorial Day, our fantastic activities director and team set up a bunch of fun, outdoor games with the USA patriotic theme. Each game had the added benefit of improving their skills including fine and gross motor skills, spatial recognition, social and emotional, and keeping their activity levels up. We played the bean bag toss and those who were up to the challenge even tried their hand at the ring toss.

Of course, we got all dressed up in USA regalia and decorated the porch to feel especially festive.

With the high numbers of veterans, service members, and military families among our residents, the holidays commemorating this great country - Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Veteran's Day, and more, are especially meaningful.
