6 activities for dads who like going out

In addition to celebrating Father’s Day with a meal at a favorite restaurant, many older adults enjoy activities like golfing, fishing, or bowling.

There are also plenty of fun, low-key activities like mini golf, cornhole, horseshoes, bird watching, or lawn bowling. For sports fans, another great option is to enjoy a live game together.

More ideas:

  1. Take a walk through nature – in the park, on an easy hiking trail, or through the neighborhood.
  2. Visit a local museum, photography exhibit, or well-known sightseeing spot.
  3. Attend a local car show – classic cars, muscle cars, or whatever revs their engine!
  4. Go to a history-themed event. Some people might be interested in something like these Civil War exhibits or reenactments.
  5. Treat him to a relaxing massage or an old-fashioned professional shave and haircut.
  6. Stroll through an indoor shopping center. It’s a pleasant, air-conditioned place to chat, people watch, and do a little shopping. Plus, there are plenty of bathrooms, seating areas, and food and drink options.

As clients transfer from acute and/or post acute care settings back into the communities, the process can be fragmented and as a result this can be detrimental to clients with complex care needs. Transitional care is there to prevent the care gap that exist between the “handoffs” from the hospital to the outpatient care teams. Our well trained and experienced advanced level nurses and nurse practitioners will connect the pieces from the acute and/or post acute care settings accurately. Our goal is to safely link clients back into the communities in a safe manner through coordination with inpatient, outpatient care teams along with family members. Our comprehensive plan of care is design to prevent unnecessary readmissions.
