You probably have a full lineup of things to do this summer, especially if you have young children. But your senior Mom likely cannot keep up with everything you have planned. It is important, however, that he avoid isolation and its ill effects this summer. Here are 3 ways you can her him with that.
- Bring the social gathering over to his place. Speak to Mom about getting together with loved ones for a meal and some games. Let him know that he won't have to lift a finger. Have everyone pitch in to prepare a meal and a few fun activities. Keep it simple and within a time limit that won't tire her out.
- Take her out to breakfast and a matinee. It won't take too much time or energy, won't break the bank, and never goes out of season. The best part about summer is that there are a wide variety of new releases to choose from.
- Help her to find a senior center. She will get a chance to meet and participate in activities with others his age. And the schedule can give her something to look forward to every week. Most communities have a program that includes transportation and free or low-cost meals.
If you give it some more thought, there are many other ways to engage Mom this summer. She will have a great time and be so grateful that you cared for him in this practical way.
