Young or old, many people love to celebrate Halloween. It evokes many fond memories that make even older adults cherish the day. Not sure what to do this year? Here are some of the ways older adults can celebrate Halloween.
Indulge in themed food and drinks
Whether it’s apple cider, gourmet caramel apples, or pumpkin-flavored anything, fall is a season with lots of delicious food and drinks to choose from. Now is the time to enjoy Halloween-themed delicacies – at home or out with friends!
What is Halloween without the good old jack-o’-lantern? Carving pumpkins is a fun way to celebrate this spooky holiday no matter your age. You can also enjoy a classic fall treat by baking the pumpkin seeds while making scary designs out of the pumpkins. Get creative and make your design as elaborate or scary as you want!
Make your own costume
A Halloween without makeup and costumes feels incomplete. Take the time to make your own costume this year to really get in the Halloween spirit. Use old clothes and supplies you have on hand or make a trip to the nearest thrift store to put together a fun look you can show off at parties.
Be part of a community this Halloween
As we age, celebrating Halloween can keep us feeling young. Being part of an upscale senior living community like Ovation Sienna Hills is another way to keep up your active lifestyle. Contact us to schedule a tour and become part of our community today!
