6 Ways to Be a Sweetie for the Senior in Your Life during the Month of Love

Valentine's Day was earlier this month— and if you’re taking care of an older loved one, then you may be searching for a special way to show your love. Here are some ways to treat your senior!

  1. Buy or make them a Valentine’s Day card. Whether it’s something sentimental or sarcastically funny, find a card that suits your loved one’s personality and expresses how you feel or that will make them laugh.
  1. Bring over a sweet treat. Bring your senior loved one a couple of chocolate kisses to give a surprise boost to their day. If your loved one can’t have chocolate, then maybe you can make a treat with fruit or something else easy and homemade in honor of Valentine’s Day.
  1. Plan a small gathering. Invite a couple of family members or friends to visit your loved one for Valentine’s Day. If you have time, make it festive with Valentine’s Day decorations.
  1. Take your loved one on a Valentine’s Day outing. You don’t have to worry about overbooked restaurants on February 14th for this idea. Think about something your loved one would really enjoy, be it a walk in a park or a brunch, for example. Or, maybe your loved one would enjoy a scenic drive. Whatever you choose, you’ll help make for an unforgettable day.
  1. Send or bring flowers or a plant. Some people like the tradition of roses, while others prefer the practicality of a houseplant or a succulent. Think about what your senior loved one would enjoy, and get that special delivery to them.
  1. Watch a love-themed movie together. There are plenty of rom-coms and love-themed movies from which to choose. Here are just a few ideas: “An Affair to Remember,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail,” Love Actually,” and “Casablanca.”
