Attending a game is a wonderful activity to do with your aging parent, family member, friend or client. When taking someone that might need a little extra assistance, be sure you consider the following:
1.) Keep Hydrated – Keep water with you at all times.
2.) Build in extra time- It’s a long walk from the parking lot, through security and to your seats. Be leisurely about it. Give yourself extra time for a short bench break on the way to your seat
3.) Pick the shady side – Do your research. Sitting in the direct sun for a daytime game can get extremely hot and uncomfortable.
4.) Radio headset – There is a lot of noise in the stadium. With aging eyesight and hearing, radio headsets can be a wonderful way to make sure a senior can get the complete picture of the game.
5.) Senior discounts – It never hurts to ask!
So, take in a game this season and root for your favorite team with someone you love.
