Several biblical and psychological studies associate the idea of having white hairs as a sign of wisdom. The appearance of white or gray hairs is said to be a result of the hard experiences and psychological stress that a person has undergone, causing damage to his/her hair cells.
Thus, listening to the hard-earned experiences of a beloved elderly person is one of the many things you can do to make them feel more loved and appreciated! Let us show them our appreciation and support. Let us give thanks to their many valuable contributions to our family, community, and country.
Here are 5 fun and memorable ways to celebrate and honor them every day – even at the comforts of your home!
- Spend quality time with them
It may be in your couch, in bed, or anywhere else — spend quality time with them by listening to their exceptional stories, their thoughts, and words of wisdom. Your listening ears and sincere laugh are some of the best gifts you can give them.
- Begin a family history project
As you listen to them, there might be new stories you have heard about them and your family. It is good to begin a family history project by collecting photos, videos, etc.
- Cook their favorite food
Cooking is an expression of love, so cook their favorite food or maybe bake some sweet treats for them!
- Play games
If shared between grandparents and grandkids, playing games like puzzles and board games can be a great way to spend quality time.
- Pamper them
You can treat your senior loved ones for a day out. It may be for a spa, salon, art classes, etc.
