As the summer season officially begins this month, most of the daily celebrations relate to summer foods and enjoying the vacation atmosphere of our lives. Better weather certainly raises our spirits. Given we have extra daylight, this is a chance to take a new look around the house and see with fresh eyes.
Have the bushes started to grow up in front of the windows? Has the groundcover started to creep across the walkways? Did the batteries in the solar lights along the driveways run out of juice? Can we see new cracks in the walkway or the stepping stones have shifted from the winter? These are just a few ideas for an exterior inspection of our homes.
As we also celebrate Father’s Day, maybe Dad’s house could use a similar look around and a bit of early summer maintenance to reduce tripping hazards and get ready for a summer of activity and fun without worrying abut the house. Age Safe America advisor members have gift certificates for Dad, too, so an expert can do a comprehensive assessment of the interior and exterior of the home and save the family time for fun.
