Embrace the Great Outdoors, Safely:

Plan Your Adventures: Schedule outdoor activities for cooler mornings or evenings when the sun’s rays are less intense. This is a great time for a gentle walk, a yoga session in the park, or a leisurely bike ride.

Hydration is Key: Carry a reusable water bottle with you at all times and sip frequently, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Dehydration can sneak up quickly, especially in hot weather.

Dress for Success: Opt for loose-fitting, breathable clothing in light colors. Natural fibers like cotton and linen allow for better air circulation. Don’t forget a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect your head and eyes from the sun’s rays.

Seek Shade: Find a shady spot to relax during the hottest part of the day, typically between 10 am and 4 pm. Pack an umbrella or enjoy time under a tree in your favorite park or the True Connection Communities courtyard.

Sunscreen is Essential: Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher generously to all exposed skin at least 15 minutes before going outdoors. Reapply every two hours, or more often if sweating or swimming.

Senior Activities in Summer at True Connection Communities:

Gardening: Get your hands dirty and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of tending to a garden. Even a small balcony space can be transformed into a flourishing haven with herbs, flowers, or even vegetables. True Connection Communities may even have community gardens where you can socialize with fellow residents while nurturing your green thumb.

Water Activities: Take a dip in the pool to cool off on a hot day. If swimming isn’t your style, enjoy a refreshing walk by the lake – some True Connection Communities even have on-site lakes or access to nearby bodies of water. You can also join a gentle water aerobics class – a low-impact exercise that’s easy on the joints.

Social Gatherings: Organize picnics with friends and neighbors in the park, or host backyard barbecues at True Connection Communities. Share recipes, laughter, and good company.

Explore Local Events: Check community calendars and ask your local True Connection Communities team about events happening near you. There may be outdoor concerts, farmers markets, or historical walking tours you can participate in. These events are a great way to stay active, learn something new, and connect with your community.

Learning Adventures: Take a class on a topic that interests you, such as photography, nature walks, or local history. True Connection Communities may even offer on-site classes or workshops you can enjoy.
