Try These Unique Father’s Day Ideas for Seniors
Dear old Dad! He’s been your biggest fan since the day you were born, running beside you as you learned to balance on a bike for the first time, coaching your Little League team, and working incredibly long hours to make sure your family was well provided for. And now that he’s older, how can you adequately show your love and appreciation to him, especially when he seems to already have everything he could possibly need?
Home & Hearth Caregivers to the rescue! As our gift to you, we wanted to share these great suggestions for celebrating Dad:
- An outing together: Spending quality time together is the best gift of all. Consider Dad’s specific interests, of course – such as attending a classic car show, bowling, or fishing – or, try something totally new. Even just a leisurely walk through a park or nature trail, with plenty of time for talking and reminiscing, allows you to create new memories.
- Staying in together: For those who are homebound or prefer being at home, plan an afternoon of watching sports together, bringing plenty of his favorite snacks with you. Or invite his best friends and close family members over for a card game or cookout. It’s the time spent with loved ones more than the actual activity that will bring meaning to Dad’s day.
- Gifts you can enjoy together: A gift of a new board or card game, movie or documentary of interest, paired with the gift of your time to sit and enjoy them with Dad, will bring you both enjoyment.
We also invite you to consider the gift of in-home senior care for Dad. Having a friendly, compassionate caregiver available to take care of some of the more mundane tasks, such as light housework, running errands, and preparing meals allows you to spend more quality time together.
Each of our caregivers is fully trained, experienced, and background checked to ensure seniors are safe and well cared for. And the bond of companionship between seniors and their caregivers is priceless, helping to stave off loneliness and isolation, and bringing about a renewed sense of independence and self-worth.
Give us a call at 800-349-0663 to get the ball rolling on offering Dad a gift that lasts well beyond Father’s Day: the gift of professional in-home care services! Serving Cook, Dupage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Will and surrounding counties, we look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
