Renovating Our Store and Getting a New Paved Driveway Gets Me Reminiscing

We bought our first commercial building many years ago to make a retail store to serve the neighborhood. I cannot even begin to imagine the number of cars that have come and gone in this asphalt parking lot outside of our convenience store and gas station. We have three stores now, but this first one is special. I was thinking about this when it was time to call a paving contractor in Nassau County NY to come and redo the lot.

Mind Tickler :-

Surely seniors enjoy games and sports as much as we do but don’t get a chance to play them. Coordinating a championship or tournament of their favorite sports  or board and card games is a great idea! Taking them to watch a game at a nearby stadium can help them rediscover the child in them.

On the floor… all over again !

As age progresses old folks give up on the little joys they enjoyed in their younger days.  If they loved to dance, low-impact, therapeutic dance classes can be arranged. Nothing beats the fun of wearing your dancing shoes, even at an old age!

Fun Getaway :-

Seniors don’t get a chance to get out much. Field trips to picnic spots like temples/ gardens/resorts /shopping mall /movies could make them feel young again. But make sure the locations are senior-friendly !

Merry Meals :-

Mealtimes can be lonely and difficult for old folks. Treat them to a feast by  setting aside a day to visit them and prepare them a delicious  meal . A date to a restaurant would also make them feel special.

Creative Connection :-

Elders are often idle and lead dull lives. Encourage them to utilise their creative potentials to make items related to arts and crafts. Then organise a fair, where their handmade products can be sold to appraise their creativity and boost their morale.

Help to Heal :-

Age brings with it a variety of ailments and diseases.  Help the aged heal by acquiring  the necessary appointments with medical professionals and by procuring the prescribed medications .
