Love isn’t about money or gifts, but time spent with the people you care about most. Valentine’s Day is a great time to remind each of your loved ones how much they mean to you by spending some quality time. Las Vegas offers some exciting activities for disabled family members of all ages, but you can also make your own fun at home.
Activities for Disabled Family Members
Bake up some quality time
Maintaining a schedule is an important part of caring for a disabled loved one. However, days as a caregiver for a disabled family member can start to feel mundane when you’re sticking to the same daily routine without sprinkling in some new activities. Trickle some sweet quality time into your day by baking some heart-shaped cookies or preparing a special meal for the two of you to enjoy.
Creative outlets for disabled adults living at home can be a form of art therapy. Get crafty and put together some unique Valentine’s Day cards. Design cards for friends, family members, and neighbors. You can even create a goody mailbox for each person living in your home.
Drop a sweet note in the boxes each day of the month. Caring for a disabled person, especially a disabled loved one, means tending to their emotional well-being as well as physical. Write them notes to remind them how special they are to you, too.
Attend local events
Sin City has a sweet side, too. Attend some local activities for disabled family members to help put the whole family in the Valentine’s Day mood. Don’t miss these events:
- “Be Mine” Valentine’s Day puppet show at Whitney Library
- Watching the special Valentine’s Day display at Bellagio Fountains
- Taking a ride on the High Roller at the Linq
- Having a special family dinner at a favorite local spot
Take care of the heart
February is not only the month of love but Heart Disease Awareness Month, too. Light physical activities for disabled family members can help prevent heart disease. Easy ways to incorporate some cardio activity into family fun time include:
- Visiting the park with family and pets
- Taking a scenic walk around local nature spots
- Participating in a scavenger hunt
