One way to keep the seniors in your life more active is by helping them participate in excursions around town. There are a variety of Fall activities in Kamloops that seniors can enjoy, many getting them out in the community and into the outdoors. Taking your senior family member from their senior assisted living facility with you, along with your children, to any of these activities happening around Kamloops, and you will be sure to have a fun afternoon.
