There are a range of other activities that are good for elderly members of the family such as gardening, family picnics, drawing or painting that can incorporate the weather.

Gardening is an activity that allows as much or as little activity but with the feeling of satisfaction. Visiting a local Garden Centre is a good way to stay socially active.
Picnics are also a fantastic way to catch up with family members or friends with the added pleasure of being outside.

Art can be a great activity for elderly people, as it adds to a sense of accomplishment and therefore boosts self-esteem. Painting something such as still life or a garden scene is a nice way to enjoy a little sunshine too.

Tips for staying safe
A temperature of 30 Degrees C can put elderly people at risk of dehydration. It is advised by Age UK to apply sunscreen if you are planning on being outside for more than 10 minutes and to take breaks in the shade each hour.

It is also advised to avoid being outside between 11am and 3pm, when the heat is the hottest.
