Celebrating Mother’s Day as a Senior

Make this Mother’s Day memorable with gifts of time and love. Choosing a creative way to let your mom know she’s special may go a long way in warming her heart. If she lives in an assisted living facility, a picnic outdoors or a walk in the park may provide hours of quality time among the people she loves. 

As an indoor activity, gather together in the afternoon to explore your genealogy online. Ask her to relate family stories during different periods of her lifetime, and record the stories for posterity. Video your day together and upload it onto her smartphone for whenever she wants to replay it.

Some moms love pampering. Take her to the spa for her favorites treatments, or bring the spa to her! Why not give her a manicure, pedicure and facial. She’ll bask in luxury without having to leave home!

If your mom appreciates healthy living, think about a fruit of the month club as a gift. She may enjoy a membership to the local gym or take her to the local farmer’s market and make dinner together.
