Renting a cottage for your family and taking advantage of some of the many activities available in Kamloops is a way to connect a family together. Including your loved ones in the planning of a summer vacation, can help bond adult family members with younger family members and relax away from the distractions of everyday life. It’s important for the emotional and mental well-being of a senior to feel like they are remaining part of the family now that they are in assisted living in Kamloops.

One thing about vacation plans is that it mixes up your everyday schedule – which can be a welcome benefit to a senior. Just like a working adult, being in assisted living means being part of a daily routine. Experiencing new scenery and adventures with the family can invigorate your senior family members, and provide joy for the entire family.
