Here are a selection of spring themed activities, events, and festivities that will be taking place throughout Baltimore and the general Maryland region that are family and senior friendly. The spotlight is on easily accessible activities that become more readily available around this time of year such as those that have a particular focus on flowers, vegetation, seasonal produce, animals, and spring holidays or other outdoor events that take advantage of the mild seasonal weather.
While some locations remain available throughout the year and many events repeat annually, there are a fair few one time occurrences or areas that are only open for public touring during a very limited time. As always, for those seniors with more severe forms of limited mobility or health issues, prospective venue locations should be checked out in advance to be certain they will provide the needed level of accessibility.

It’s obvious that falls can be disastrous for the elderly. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) put the figure at one in five falls resulting in a serious injury including head injuries and broken bones. Another important reason to ensure preventive measures are in place is that the fear of falling itself can seriously affect an aging adult’s quality of life, reducing them from being active and mobile.
