There’s no one like Mom, and Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to express your gratitude. If you want to make your Mother’s Day extra special, here are a few ideas to get started.
Take A Day Trip
A day excursion is an exciting Mother’s Day option to explore if your mother is in assisted living or still at home but unable to travel. Take her to a favorite restaurant or a day of pampering, but make sure the event is tailored to her needs.
Invite Along Her Friends
Consider inviting a senior or two to your Mother’s Day celebrations who may be lonely or unable to celebrate with family. You’ll enjoy the opportunity to meet other residents at your mother’s assisted living complex, and we’re confident it will brighten the day of those you invite.
Bring Her Her Favorites
If going out with your mother is difficult due to medical conditions, bring (or send) her favorite foods instead. Before arriving pack her favorite meal from her favorite restaurant and a favorite dessert from the greatest bakery in town. Add some bright flowers and a festive tablecloth, and you’ve turned an average day into something special.
Bring Along the Grandkids
Another approach to spend meaningful time with her on Mother’s Day is to bring the grandkids to visit, or to have a meal or a walk with her at her senior living community.
Visit Your Mom Virtually
A tried-and-true approach to convey love is to send a gift, care package, or card via mail or delivery. Another option is to set up a family video call so that everyone can virtually be with her. You might also make a video in which you tell your mother how much she means to you and share favorite stories. This is a priceless memento that she may watch over and over.
On Mother’s Day, you may find it impossible to celebrate with your mother, which can leave you feeling guilty or worried. Remember, though, that you don’t have to be physically there with your mother to honor her on Mother’s Day. If you’ll be in town a few weeks after Mother’s Day, schedule a special day with her at that time.
