“The years have been just full of surprises for me, and a lot of fun.” – Dick Van Dyke
Do you celebrate your elderly parent’s birthdays?
For many people a quick ‘happy birthday’ is where the celebration starts and ends, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
While throwing a lavish birthday party may not be their style, there are still many modest yet powerful ways of making your loved one feel special on this significant day.
Here’s a great idea you can start working on today.
Have you ever received a letter from someone dear to you? How did it make you feel? You can see where this is headed. Your mom or dad feel the same when they get a letter from someone they care about.
Now add up the entire family, all the children, grandchildren, siblings and close friends (at Elmwood Hills Healthcare Center they probably have quite a few) and have them all write a personal birthday letter.
Yes, it’s quite a feat but well worth the effort.
Put it all together and present them with the album.
What kind of an impact would that have? Quite a big one.
Who will you ask to take part in the letter album?
