Comfort can come in many forms. Here are some ideas for those you love:
Pictures and Connection: It would be comforting for loved ones to know what’s going on with their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A digital frame that is set up for family members to send daily or weekly pictures is very easy and therapeutic. Your loved one feels in touch with their family and it creates joy to see those they love. Couple it with a morning phone call saying — check your photo album today, we’ve added something new — to really add some excitement to their day.
Food: Dropping off homemade meals in containers ready to pop in the microwave is great. Having snacks and meals labeled for the week in small amounts encourages seniors to eat well and not be intimidated by large portions. Your loved one might be more inclined to eat and drink better if it’s food their family prepared.
