There is someone special on Valentine’s Day who needs your love and attention. This person is beautiful, intelligent, kind, fun to spend time with, and will set your heart aflutter. You’ll never feel happier than when you’re close to him or her.
This person is not some clichéd handsome prince or cute girl. And to celebrate Valentine’s Day with them does not mean cards, flowers, chocolate and trite romantic platitudes.
This person—people—are the elders in your life. Whether you live with them, near them, or they’re in a nursing home, Orange county wellness center or care facility, there is every reason in the world to show them how much you love them on Valentine’s Day; and not just then, do it more often!
Below are some special things you can do with your elderly loved one. Remember: above all, your companionship and that of your family (especially grandchildren) is the non-negotiable. It is precisely the thing they need the most.
Finally, it could be that you don’t have an elderly person in your life. How about making Valentine’s Day special for a new friend? There are plenty of volunteer opportunities at your local nursing home or elder care facility. Rather than thinking about their age and how to prepare for their Los Angeles funeral services expense, spend time and money to make them happy while they still live.
