Showing how much you appreciate your mother can be done in countless ways, every single day. With Mother’s Day approaching, there is no better way to spend time with the woman who shaped who you are today. With some social distancing protocols still in place, this year’s celebration will be different from the previous years. But this does not mean that you cannot celebrate the holiday with your loved ones in memory care assisted living.
Ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in Memory Care Assisted Living
While many places are still navigating through the ease of social distancing, we are excited to share these fun and safe ideas:
Set up a video call along with other family members through your choice of online platform. Make it even more special by making handmade signs, banners, balloons, or other decorations. Recorded messages from other family members are also great reminders that she is special.
With limited options, you can always send a gift to her memory care assisted living facility. It can be from professionally prepared gift or something that you have worked hard for.
A box of goodies like the food and self care items will add spark and sunshine to her day, all the way.
If you have the luxury of time and skills to cook, you can prepare her favorite meal, family recipe, or bake family treats to remind her of the good old days.
While some are still not allowed to head out to make this day extra special, some states have already eased their health protocols. If you are lucky, you might get to visit your mother this Mother’s Day. So, when you do, you can try these ideas to share special moments with her.
Try Something New
Create new memories with your Mom by trying out something new together. Many memory care facilities will host community games or events for holidays. This is a great time to join in on some new activities while staying safe.
Help her in mending her garden, play trivia games, or just reminisce the younger years to help her refresh her memory at the same time bring back the glorious days.
Go on a Picnic
Pack one of your family’s favorite meals, a book, a board game, and enjoy the outdoors in a nearby park. A change of scenery is refreshing which helps boost her mood.
Play with the grandkids
If possible, you can bring your kids to your Mom’s place. Include the kiddos in different Mother’s Day activities as their way of bonding. Memories and connections to last a lifetime are created through shared activities with the old and younger generations.
If your Mom or a loved one is in memory care assisted living, start planning your options now. Whether you spend this holiday virtual or in person, you are sure to create memories that will be forever treasured.
