Fall Activities That Are Chronic Illness Friendly

After the long, hot slog of summer, it's finally fall! Now is the perfect time to enjoy the season with some chronic-illness-friendly fall activities. Read on to discover our favorite ideas for your fall bucket list.

Movie Nights

Spooky movies are fun to watch during the fall, but it’s also a great time for other genres too. A movie night is a perfect way to enjoy the season in a low-key way with friends and family. Choose  a classic horror film, a family-friendly Halloween movie, or an autumn-themed romantic comedy, warm up some cider, and enjoy!

Trunk or Treat Events

If your mobility is limited, but you still want to enjoy trick-or-treating with your family, try a trunk or treat event! Many churches and other organizations sponsor these events leading up to Halloween. You can even bring a lawn chair, so you can sit and watch your kids have a blast.

Fall Leaves Tours

Whether you visit an arboretum or take a scenic drive, chances are there’s a location nearby with excellent fall leaf viewing. Look for spots within a comfortable driving distance. Then pack a hot drink and a picnic, and make an afternoon of it!

Get Creative with Pumpkins

Nothing shouts Halloween like a carved jack o’ lantern, but if your hands aren’t up for it, you’ve got options. Glow in the dark paint can make for a spooky scene, and Pinterest is full of inspiration for fall-themed vignettes. If you’ve got a willing partner-in-crime, you can design a jack o’ lantern and leave the carving to someone else!

Treatment at IVX Health
