As families’ elderly parents celebrate Mother’s Day, there are many options for activities and gifts that can bring joy to all involved.
As people age, the ultimate expression of love is the way they care for others. This could be an elderly wife caring for her ailing husband, or an adult daughter providing care for her ill mother. This makes celebrating Mother’s Day more difficult than it used to be. One option for a Mother’s Day gift comes in the form of respite care. By finding a temporary stand-in caregiver for a loved one, it gives the adult daughter or older wife a much-needed break. Sometimes a few hours of refreshing separation can be the most help.
