Spring is the season of new beginnings – so why not start it off right by being the one who brings a smile to the face of a senior in your community. After a long winter that is often isolating for many older adults, acts of kindness are an easy way to bring sunshine to someone’s life. Whether it’s dropping off flowers, going for a walk, or mowing someone’s grass, no good deed goes unnoticed.

Besides the scientific studies that say it’s healthy for us to help others, being kind is just the right thing to do. Here are a few ideas to brighten a senior’s season:

  1. Pick up a newspaper from driveway.
  2. Have a socially distanced picnic or chat.
  3. Offer to a walk dog.
  4. Share pictures from a recent nature walk.
  5. Knock on a door and check in.

What is something you plan to do for or with a senior in the weeks ahead?

This weekend put candy in Easter eggs & made out Easter cards for the residents at a nursing home close to me. Friday going to visit my friend for her 90th birthday. Bringing my dog & some special treats for her. It’s still hard with covid restrictions in place but I have found small ways to put a smile on people’s faces even thou I am not there.
