The days are cooler, leaves are falling and changing colors indicate fall’s arrival. It’s the time of year that starts to feel cooler and cozier. Even in sunny Glendale, California one can find elements of Autumn. For many people, questions arise about how to take advantage of the new season. Thankfully, there are several activities Glendale residential care residents can enjoy during the fall season.
For residents, it’s an ideal time to get outside and enjoy a reprieve from the heat. Glendale residents and aging loved ones benefit greatly from getting exercise to stimulate their physical, mental and emotional states. While living in a Glendale residential care center, it’s important for residents to enjoy seasonal activities.
