A trip to the movies is a great way to spend quality time with your aging parents. If your folks have mobility issues, these five tips can help make their movie-going experience more enjoyable.
1. Give Yourself Plenty of Time
Rushing to get to the theater and find seating can make the entire experience stressful and frustrating for both you and your parents. Rushing a parent with mobility issues may also lead to an accidental fall or injury.
