This Valentine’s Day, show your elderly loved ones some extra love and appreciation. A little extra effort can make a big difference.
- Share a special breakfast or lunch together.
- Involve kids – seniors love homemade valentine’s day cards, cookies and crafts.
- Frame an old photo of you with the senior and include a card how much they mean to you.
- Play cards or board games with them.
- Take them out for coffee, a movie or another place they would be interested in visiting.
- Invite an old friend or loved one for a special afternoon tea party.
Most of all, be present. Let them know you are thinking about them and you care. You will both cherish your time together.
