Get Loose With Fun-Loving, Adventurous Destiny Senior Care

Colonial Cafe, Naperville

Are you bouncing off the walls at home? Seniors who live alone often become lonely and bored. Sometimes you just have to get out of the house and let loose.

One of the unique features of Destiny Senior Care is that we occasionally take our clients out on the town for a little fun. We undertake various activities. A two-hour trip to a restaurant or a park can do a world of good for them.

Let Annie Nestor, Destiny Senior Care owner, take you out to Colonial Cafe in Naperville, for example. The Colonial Cafe is a local icon, having been founded more than one hundred years ago. Today it’s known for its hand-dipped homemade ice cream and old-fashioned fountain. Although health concerns over the COVID virus have placed restrictions on eating out, an ice cream outing is safe. We can always make a special lunch for the road as well.

That’s not all.

You’ll enjoy the fresh air and sunshine and enjoy laughter as we talk about family, friends and matters dear to your heart.

“These outings have lightened up the day for many of our clients – or should I call them friends,” Annie said. “Sometimes seniors have been inside for so long they forget what it is to cut loose and have a little fun.”

Unique Adventures

These invigorating outings are unique to most home care services, but Annie understands their importance and makes sure that the seniors have a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

“The fresh air and walking around are good for one’s health as well,” Annie said. Arrangements are often made to get together with other clients and friends. Thus, group interaction adds to the delight of the day.

Besides restaurants, another trip might be to a hair salon, such as the C’est La Vie Hair Boutique & Spa on 143rd Place in Orland Park. Thus, this kind of trip provides for lively conversation – and you that good feeling of looking your best when you step out the door.

Another trip could be the Morton Arboretum in Lisle. This public garden has an outdoor museum with a library, herbarium, and a program in which they protect one hundred rare and endangered tree species.

Other trips have been to Navy Pier in Chicago, a pumpkin farm, shopping, and local parks.

The National Institutes of Health conducted a study, “Getting Out and About in Older Adults,” in which they noted, “A key public health objective is increasing health-enhancing physical activity for older adults.”

Here are some other ideas for trips that we would consider:

  • Visiting museums, libraries and tourist attractions
  • Going on historical tours and visiting historic sites.
  • Enjoying the great outdoors with a picnic in the park.
  • Attending special events or festivals, such as an art show, craft fair, farmers market or parade.
  • Attending concerts and sporting events.
