As a professional consultant to individuals and families seeking Senior Living solutions in and around Olympia WA we often have interesting news to share with our readers.
A few weeks back, Assisted Living Options suggested some ways to make an outing with elder loved ones safe and non-stressful. If you are looking at that sometimes-sunny sky and trying to find somewhere to go with your loved one living in a senior living facility here in Olympia, we have a few suggestions to get you planning.
Olympic Flight Museum: This museum is located at the Olympia Regional Airport. January through April, they are open Wednesday through Sunday, but beginning in May the museum will be open from 11am-5pm seven days a week. World War II aircraft and memorabilia forms the bulk of the exhibit, and there are air shows and other events planned by the museum. Depending on their age and military experience, grandparents may be able to show younger generations the type of planes they or their fathers flew during their time in service.
Percival Landing: This boardwalk-style park on the waterfront of West Bay is a great place for people-watching. Stroll as far as you wish before stopping for a picnic, enjoying the sights and the Sound. A children’s playground will get the little ones tired out, and the sculptures scattered throughout are a great way to get all ages talking about art. There are places to eat and shop, and the Capitol can be seen at a distance. The distinctive roof of the Harbor House is eye-catching, too.
Olympia Farmers Market: Farmers markets are appearing everywhere these days, and the Olympia Farmers Market is now open for the season. Walk through the market, collecting samples and reminiscing about favorite meals, and maybe buy some flowers to send home with your loved one.
Spending the day with loved ones is important. Even when it seems challenging, remember that planning ahead can make a day’s adventure much more fun. Your family will appreciate it, and you will know you have helped create a memorable experience for all.
