Philadelphia has it all: Museums, amusement parks, historical sites, opera, ballet, theatre, art galleries, music, sports, nature, and more! Who needs New York City when one can go to concerts at Mann Center for the Performing Arts, see spectacular gardens at Longwood Gardens, view the dinosaurs at the Academy of Natural Sciences, or attend a sporting event to see the Eagles, Flyers, Phillies or Sixers play.
If your loved one is looking for something fun or interesting to do in Philadelphia, there are many activities suitable for people over the age of 65. He or she can participate in these activities alone or go to these attractions and events with a Philadelphia caregiver.
When you or a Philadelphia part-time caregiver takes your loved one to visit one of the many historical sites and museums in Philadelphia, this can keep his or her brain connections and nerves stimulated and open. Brain cells do not automatically die as a person ages. Instead, the cells die when they are not used properly. Going to these types of attractions can also promote social stimulation, which is helpful for preventing depression or isolation, issues known to affect the elderly.
