People all over the country set aside the fourth Sunday in July to celebrate National Parents’ Day. Your senior parents deserve appreciation for raising you and working hard throughout their lives, and Warren live-in care experts have a few thoughtful suggestions for honoring them on this meaningful holiday.
Take Them to a Favorite Spot
Depending on the pastimes your parents enjoy, you could take them to a movie, head to the local park for a summer picnic, or attend a relaxing concert together. Focus on making the time special and memorable for them. If one or both of your parents are not able to go on an outing because of health complications, have a surprise party or other type of get-together at home.
Make a Scrapbook
The scrapbook you put together can contain photos and mementos from your parents’ lives, arranged in a beautiful and creative way. Take a walk down memory lane as you present this treasured item to your parents on their special day. If you don’t have time to create a full scrapbook, make a homemade card and write heartfelt notes of gratitude to let your parents know how much you love and appreciate them.
Cook a Special Family Dish
Certain foods can become traditions for families. Perhaps there’s an entrée or dessert your mother made frequently when you were a child or a favorite snack your father just can’t live without. Gather the recipes you need and start cooking. If your parents have Warren in-home caregivers who help with meal preparation, enlist them for their expertise.
Help with Tasks Around the House
If your elderly parents aren’t able to do as many chores around the house as they could in the past, National Parents’ Day is the perfect time to pitch in. Ask your parents what needs to be done, or surprise them by doing mowing the lawn, tending the garden, washing dishes, cleaning the house, or helping them declutter.
Another way you can show your elderly parents you care is by hiring a professional caregiver to assist with exercise, provide social and mental stimulation, and help with important daily tasks. At Home Care Assistance, our caregivers are available around-the-clock, all of our care services are backed with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and we’ll never ask you to sign a long-term contract.
