Your parents can’t get outside into their garden. You can still take walks, but it’s hard to do that on a rainy day. Here are five movies you or your senior care provider can watch together on those dreary days when getting outside seems impossible.
In this Tim Burton movie starring Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, and Billy Crudup, a man recounts his fantastic, unbelievable life adventures meeting a giant, a witch, and many other colorful characters to his son. While they’re impossible to believe, the truth may be more surprising.
The Blind Side

In this coming-of-age movie starring Bruce Willis and Bill Murray, an orphan runs away from his camp to meet the girl of his dreams. Once they unite, they run away together to an isolated beach together, but the island police, family members, and camp scouts are all on a mission to find them.
In this Indian film, a bride is dumped the day before her wedding. Rather than stay and be miserable, she decides to go on their honeymoon to Europe.

Have you been taking time to focus on yourself, too?
Your parents need help, but you cannot ignore self-care. You need to take care of yourself. Senior home care offers the chance to take a few hours, a few days, or several weeks off. Go on a vacation, attend to your health care needs, or run errands knowing that a caregiver is with your parents while you’re away. Call a senior care expert to learn more.
