Celebrating Fathers and Senior Care at Home
It’s hard to believe it’s already June and that Father’s Day is just around the corner. This is the time to think about the important man in our lives who helped to shape who we are today. While it may seem enough to simply send a card and call it a day, it is important to remember our dads deserve some extra love too!
When it comes to giving the perfect Father’s Day gift, it doesn’t have to be something expensive. All it takes to bring a smile to Dad’s face is the thought. Taking the time to learn about what he’s interested in and finding out how you can be involved is the best gift you can give. Our often hectic schedules can make it can be difficult to just sit and listen to each other. This Father’s Day, show Dad how much you appreciate him and give him the gift of time and undivided attention. Spending time preparing a special meal, a craft, or photobook doesn’t take too much time and doesn’t cost a lot to show you care. Give the gift of time and help to create some new memories that he will cherish long through to next year’s Father’s Day.
Another way to celebrate Dad this Father’s Day is to create a picture book full of fun memories you shared and little stories from old family photographs that might be stored in boxes in the attic. Gather some of these memories, scan them, and put the photos together in a printed photo book that can be created online. This thoughtful treasure will be something that can be kept and passed on to future generations. There is nothing better to share with our family then stories of our past and what makes us each unique.
If Dad is an avid golfer, a gift certificate to his favorite course would be a wonderful Father’s Day gift. Perhaps he would love to go out for a few rounds with you. This is a great time to pick up some clubs and join him, even if golf is not really your sport. The effort and thought is what will count most; even if mulligans are requested more often than not!
This year, let’s give Dad something he can enjoy now. Take him to a new action flick at the movies. Treat him to the popcorn and candies to make it more of an event. Another idea is to bring him something delicious you can grill and enjoy the preparation and feast together at home.
