Douglas County seniors looking for some fun this summer will be excited about the upcoming local events in the city. Planning to go to a local happening can give an older adult something to look forward to and bring happiness into his or her life. Here are five events Douglas County seniors should check out this summer.
1. Easy Breezy Summer Book Club
The Castle Pines Branch of the Douglas County Library at 360 Village Square Lane will host a reading group on July 12th from 6:30pm to 8pm. This book club will give seniors the opportunity to read books, talk about interesting topics, and interact with their community members. The book club lasts for only three months, which gives seniors the chance to boost their self-esteem and make new friends.
In addition to reading books, seniors can enjoy a high quality of life with the help of professional caregivers. Douglas County elderly care experts are available to provide high-quality care to seniors on an as-needed basis. From assistance with mobility and exercise to providing transportation to the doctor’s office and social events, there are a variety of ways professional caregivers can help your aging loved one continue to live independently.
2. Play! The Zoo Comes to You
The Parker Library in Douglas County at 20105 East Main Street will be hosting this event on July 13th from 9:30am to 10:15am in the event hall. Seniors can study animal habitats, learn about an animal’s eating habits, and enjoy watching live animals from the Denver Zoo. Bonding with an animal may help decrease a senior’s anxiety.
3. Living and Aging Well Senior Luncheon
The Lone Tree Golf Club at 9808 Sunningdale Boulevard is arranging for this event on August 14th and every second Monday of the month from 11:30am to 1pm. Older adults can enjoy a delicious meal and socialize with other seniors. Each luncheon will feature a variety of guest speakers and special activities for the elderly. Seniors can get information about existing financial, health, and home care agencies that may be beneficial to them as they age. Reservations are required.
Every senior has different needs when aging in place. Some simply need occasional assistance with household chores, while others may be managing a serious illness and require more extensive 24-hour home care. Douglas County seniors can count on Home Care Assistance to provide the in-home care they need and deserve.
4. Starlight Summer Movie
This outdoor family film event will take place in Downtown Castle Rock on August 25th from 6pm to 10pm. Seniors can stroll through the street fair to see what the vendors are offering, participate in family activities, and engage with their community members. Older adults can also enjoy a delicious meal from an on-site food vendor before relaxing and watching a film under the stars. Admission is free.
5. Coffee and Conversation
The Castle Rock Senior Activity Center at 2323 Woodlands Boulevard provides seniors a wonderful opportunity to socialize and prevent loneliness. Every day from 8:30am to 4pm this center offers seniors free pastries and fresh coffee as well as the opportunity to interact with several community members.
