Do you have a senior neighbor who still has holiday decorations on the porch? Take the hint and lend a hand! Seniors, especially those with mobility issues, may have difficulty cleaning. But with a little help from a friend or neighbor, tackling a small to-do list can inspire a fresh perspective and a sense of accomplishment.

This week help a senior spruce up for spring by completing 1 of these 5:

  • Check in: Call or video chat with a senior to see what they might need.
  • Donate: Offer to take a box of clothes or books to a donation center.
  • Add cheer: Spring is a time for blossoms! African violets are low maintenance indoor plants that can brighten a window ledge.
  • Plant it: Plant flowers outside for a senior to spruce up their yard.
  • Sweep: A simple sweep of the front porch or walkway can help freshen up the facade.

How will you help make someone’s spring a little brighter (and cleaner)?

I was at Publix & noticed an elderly couple attempting to scan their groceries ( with difficulty). I scanned their items, took them to their car & placed them where requested( the trunk & backseat). They were very grateful (& so was I for them allowing me to assist).

Late reading this one, but with the pendemic virus out there no physical contact so maybe a phone call or note in the mail for a Senior! 💖
