You can book one for your family for them to enjoy an intergenerational picnic on Grandparents Day. If your senior family member lives in an assisted living facility, interact with the staff about picnic at the on-campus location.
Arrange for Movie Night– You can either rent or borrow a movie projector and showcase a movie against the side of the house or on a white sheet strung between two trees in the back yard. Do keep the important items in place like blankets for the kids and camping or folding chairs for the senior adults. Watching a movie together is a great way that can help to bond.
Home Maintenance– It can be immense fun in handling home repairs and maintenance projects at your senior loved one’s home when done together. Ask your parent to create a list of things that they need help with which will help you to line up the supplies ahead of time.
A Talent Show– Organize a family talent show for everyone in the family in order for them to showcase their unique talent even if it’s just a willingness to make fun of themselves on stage. Members who stay faraway can also record their talent which you can play for your senior loved ones. Reward the winning family members with prizes.
Family Tree Project– As a person ages, people mostly reflect back on their lives and especially families which piques their interest in researching their family tree in more detail or in documenting what they know about their family for future generations. You can easily get started with by going through any of the genealogy websites.
