Father’s Day Activities for Seniors and Their Families

Father’s Day is right around the corner and celebrations are waiting to be planned! Whether your dad is living at home or in a retirement community, there are many ways to show your gratitude for all he’s done over the years. Get the family together and get ready to have fun with these Father’s Day celebration ideas.

Celebrate with Food

Show your appreciation to Dad by cooking him a home-cooked meal, or inviting him over for a Father’s Day BBQ. Most seniors love being around their families, especially when it involves their favorite meal. Make sure to have plenty of comfortable seating available for Dad and any other seniors who might attend. Pay attention to the heat and be sure to provide shaded areas and plenty of water if you decide to celebrate outdoors.

Attend a Sporting Event

This summer, baseball is in the air which makes a perfect family outing. Many stadiums have discounts for seniors and offer handicapped seating for those who have trouble walking. To make sure you get the tickets you desire, it’s advised to call beforehand and reserve your seating arrangements. Baseball is a great way to take Dad back to “the good ole days” with the whole family. Grab a hotdog and some cracker jacks and enjoy the game!

Go to the Movies

A trip to the movie theatre is a perfect treat on a hot summer day. Surprise your dad with a trip to see a new release, or stay back and watch his favorite movie at home. Consider surprising him with an old movie he used to watch when he was younger, or even better—let him choose the movie. Make it special with his favorite snacks or some popcorn.

Do a Craft

Keep your dad busy this year with a fun family-friendly craft. Making photo frames from fabric, painting bird houses, or coloring together is a great way to spend the day. If you can, try getting the whole family involved! The craft will be a great reminder of how much he is loved each day.

Help with Chores

Ask your dad to give you a list of things he needs help with, either around the house or uncompleted errands. Shopping for groceries or repairing a broken cabinet are great ways to show your appreciation for dad. You can always do these chores together to make mundane tasks feel special.
