National Seniors Day!
Did you know that October 1st was National Seniors Day? Yes, I know...it's now the 12th, but that doesn't mean that we can't still acknowledge those seniors that are special to us! I thought this was a good opportunity to share with you how you can show that special senior in your life that you care:
Call them! Either pick up the phone to chat or set up a virtual call.
Send a card, postcard or letter in the mail for a nice surprise in their mailbox other than another bill!
Visit that important senior in your life - go for a walk outside, have lunch together, do a puzzle, or play cards.
Bring your children or grandchildren for a visit.
Surprise that special senior in your life with their favourite flowers, some chocolates, a book, or a cozy throw blanket.
Volunteer at a local seniors' centre
Sit down and reminisce through old family photos.
Surprise them by cooking an old family recipe and sharing a meal together!
The possibilities are endless and don't require any money and very little effort. The important thing is the quality time that you spend together. Decide what would mean the most to that special someone and make a plan to reach out! I would love to hear from you on how you celebrated that special senior in your life. Share in the comments section of the blog.
Also, a reminder to comment if there is a specific topic that you would like to learn more about on my blog.
Until next time, take care!
