Make Grandma’s Day! Way to Show Extra Love in 2020November 06, 2020
2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, though here at Blue Harbor, we’ve kept our spirits high as we work hard to protect each and every resident while still providing opportunities for socializing, learning, exercise, creativity, and FUN!
However, with the current pandemic, we know that many are unable to spend in-person time the people they love. Want to show grandpa or grandma some extra adoration? We’ve got lots of ideas for how to make their days even brighter! And let’s be sure to make their day often; they deserve it!
Make Grandma’s Day!
#1 Schedule a Video Call!
Our residents absolutely adore seeing their family, even if it’s online! Schedule a Zoom Call with your loved one, they’ll absolutely adore getting to see you and hear your warm and caring voice!
#2 Show Appreciation—and Give Compliments!
A little kindness goes a long way! Just read our Power of Kindness blog from last month for proof. Give your grandpa or grandma a call and let them know 5 of your favorite things about them! Or, send them some surprise flowers for no occasion at all.
#3 Write Handwritten Letters—and Send Photos!
Snail mail has never gone out of fashion, and our residents absolutely love receiving handwritten letters. Send a special postcard or some loving words, along with a fun update from your life! Include a printed photo of you or your family in the letter; this visual will warm their hearts!
#4 Send a Care Package
Everyone deserves to be pampered, and especially our hardworking grandparents! Send a care package with some of their favorite things. Lotions, facemasks, and soothing aromatherapy can really encourage your loved one to relax and indulge in some self-care!
#5 Create a Memory Box—and Other Gift Ideas!
Sending a thoughtful gift is always a wonderful way to show affection. We love creating Memory Boxes (hop on over to our Memory Boxes blog to learn more!), along with handmade items or framed photos.
These are just a few beautiful ways to warm your loved ones’ hearts. If we can help you make your loved one’s day even more special (think: WOW! Moments!), the True Blue team is here to help.
