Recreational Activities for Kids and Seniors to do Together


People tend to slow down as they get older. This means a decline in physical and cognitive activities. While this may be the natural process of life, there is no reason why you should take it lying down. In fact, it is all the more reason to get involved in activities to enhance your mobility and keep you interested and engaged in life. The elderly care San Mateo CA seniors receive from Always Best Care includes a harmonious balance of physical and mental activity.

If you are a grandparent, there’s no better way to get some much deserved exercise than by spending time with your grandkids. The San Mateo area, with its pleasant tropical climate has a range of activities for seniors and kids that will enhance your physical, mental and creative side.

Visiting a Zoo

If you have young grandchildren, between the ages of 2 to 7, CuriOdyssey makes for a great outing. It’s a small zoo found on Coyote Point Drive, with plenty of wildlife, science and engineering exhibits for young and old alike. Your grandchildren will be occupied for hours on end, while you may just learn a thing or two yourself. The assisted living San Mateo CA seniors receive allows them to visit places such as these with peace of mind as their companion caregiver can accompany them.

The San Mateo Japanese Garden

There are days when you won’t feel like much activity. The San Mateo Japanese Garden, is perfect for these days, when all you want is to feel closer to nature. This is a great place to visit in late winter or early spring and if you are there at either 11 am or 3pm, you get to watch the staff feed the Koi fish, an experience your grandkids will thoroughly enjoy and remember for a long time to come.

A Lunch Date for Two

Everyone enjoys a lunch date and to make it extra special why not take your grandkids to Rainbow Pizza, located in Crystal Springs Village. Kids love pizza and you’ll love the atmosphere. The in-home care San Mateo CA senior caregiver program allows them the freedom to interact with their loved ones and venture out to explore what life has to offer.
