When it comes to senior home care, Griswold Home Care is a strong believer in encouraging community and active lifestyles for seniors, adults with disabilities, and retirees. While Griswold is committed to being a top caregiver referral service to help seniors maintain their independence. The greater Orlando area hosts an abundance of activities, events, and support for seniors to engage with and experience.
Wellbeing for seniors is not constrained to solely physical maintenance. Emotional and social wellbeing are also extremely important aspects to the overall health of not only seniors, but all people. Many in-home caregivers share this belief and readily recommend that seniors engage and interact with their local communities. Here in Central Florida, there is no shortage of senior activities and events.
Below are just a few of the many activity opportunities for seniors in the Orlando area:
- See a Play at the Mad Cow Theatre
One of the most respected theatres in Orlando, Mad Cow Theatre is an excellent venue to enjoy award-winning musicals, comedies, and dramas. Current headline productions include Fences (Aug 4 – 27) and The Amish Project (Aug 11 – Sept 10), but the theatre hosts many other plays as well.
- Visit the Morse Museum of Stained Glass
Located in the heart of Winter Park, The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, is renowned for its collection from master designer Louis Comfort Tiffany. Stroll through vast assortments of American art pottery, paintings, and 19th-20th century fine art collections.
- Explore the Harry P. Leu Gardens
Take a stroll down the three miles of scenic walkways and experience the natural beauty of the butterfly, bamboo, and palm gardens. Visitors can enjoy free admission into the gardens every first Monday of the month.
- Take a class at a local senior Center
The City of Orlando’s Recreation Division currently operates two full-time senior centers. The Mayor William Beardall Center is located downtown and the L. Claudia Allen Center is in West Orlando. Both centers boast state-of-the-art amenities and host a wide range of senior activities and classes to participate in including dancing, computer labs, and fitness rooms.
- Take a tour of Epcot
DisneyWorld isn’t just for the kids! Epcot is well-known for its entertainment options including boat rides, cartoon shorts, and various yearly festivals. If you happen to be visiting during the appropriate season, check out the Food and Wine Festival and Flower and Garden Festival.
For those seniors whose mobility is restricted or for those who simply wish to remain at home, Griswold can refer caregivers who will happily facilitate home activities such as gardening, games, and movie nights.
