If you noticed that you haven’t been spending time with your senior loved one lately, you can always make up for it. As we get older, we realize that sharing your time with someone you love is the best gift you can give to them. In this day and age, everything is moving so fast. Get away from your usual hectic schedule and spend time with the people who matter. At Home With Help, we strongly support families who make the effort in catching up with their loved one. If you don’t know what you and your loved one should do during your time together, here are some things you can try out:
- Attend a class you’re both interested in
If your loved one is given the green signal by their doctor to go out, why not do something productive such as enrolling in a class you both like? There are multiple classes that cater to beginners such as cooking classes. Not only will you learn something, but you can also get to bond with your loved one over something both of you like.
- Visit the places you used to go together
If you drifted apart from your loved one, there’s nothing like remembering the times the two of you spent together as a way of bonding. You’d be surprised at how many memories you forgot and were only recalled when your loved one mentioned it. It’s a humbling fact at how much the two of you have grown. Take a trip down memory lane by going to the places you used to visit. If you don’t know what to say, you can never go wrong with talking about the memories you have together.
- Plan family dinners
A lot of factors can be the cause of families drifting apart without meaning to. Go out of the way to plan a family dinner or outing for your loved one. They might not say it, but they terribly miss each family member, especially if all of them are busy with their own lives. Set the date and venue, and Home With Help, a provider of Personal Care Services in the Greater Scottsdale, Phoenix AZ, will be more than happy to help your loved one prepare for the event.
- Take turns in sharing your favorite movies, books, etc.
If both of you don’t want to go out and would just like to lounge around the house all day, why not talk about your favorites? It can be anything, from books to movies to music. It can be a great way to know your loved one better. By the end of the day, you’ll know more about them while also having a list of things that you should watch and listen.
