Gather the Family and Work Together to Beat an Escape Room

Homecare Atherton, CA: Fun Family Outing

Caregiver burnout is a real condition. It’s proven that daily care of an elderly parent, grandparent, or friend wears you out physically and emotionally.

It’s normal to want to be there for your parents, but it’s not normal to put your health at risk providing that care. Have you been building a balance between helping your parents and making sure you’re spending quality time together?

It’s important that you get out of the house and have fun. It could be as simple as taking a walk together. You might want to go out and eat. If there is a group of you looking for something to do, have you ever thought about an escape room?

What is an Escape Room?

Escape rooms are catching on across the U.S. Think of them as live puzzles you have to solve in order to win. Most games have an hour limit, so it makes for a wonderful day out. Go to lunch before you head to the escape room or do dinner after.

Most escape rooms require the players to be at least 13 years of age. This makes it easy to get teens, their parents, and their grandparents spending time together. Having varied ages can help out, too. An escape room is filled with puzzles to solve. The variety of ages tends to work best given the types of puzzles you encounter.

As an example, you may have an escape room where the goal is to get out of the room before the extraterrestrial awakens. To do this, you must solve puzzles that involve unscrambling words, finding keys, using black lights to find padlock combinations, hacking a computer password, and solving color code puzzles.

Your parents may not be able to run around, but they’re great at solving puzzles. They could work on those from a chair while your teens are searching under furnishings for clues. As they do that, you could be trying to figure out the right combination to open a lock. When someone solves something, you gather to see what new clues are revealed and keep going. Teamwork is necessary in escape rooms.
