How Do You Show Your Grandma You Love Her?

How Do You Show Your Grandma You Love Her?

Unfortunately, we take many precious things in our lives for granted, such as our relationships with the people we care about. You may be too busy to call your grandmother now and then to see how she is, to drop by to check if she needs anything, or to visit her during the holidays. But fortunately, there are things you can do to show your grandma you love her.

· Listen to Her Carefully

If we only took the time to stop and listen, the elderly would have a lot of exciting stories to tell. Your grandma’s rich life experience can be a great source of inspiration and guidance.

So, next time you visit her, show your appreciation for your grandma’s wisdom by listening carefully to her.

Inquire about specific details from her past and show that you care about her feelings by asking her about her experiences, memories, and emotions.

Many older adults are rarely given the opportunity to share their fascinating stories with others.

So, you will not only learn something new by being a good listener, but you will also make your grandma feel loved and appreciated.

· Take Your Grandma Outside

Spending time in nature has numerous advantages for the elderly.

Research shows that spending time in nature can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improve cognitive functions such as focus and memory, improve sleep, and boost the immune system.

Outdoor activities can help your grandma feel more energized and happier, relax, get more vitamin D, and recover from injuries or illness faster.

So, make plans for the weekend to visit a nearby park, garden, or beach with your grandma.

· Browse Through Old Photo Albums Together

By looking through old family albums together, you can assist your grandmother in recalling her early days and past events. Reminiscences of her past can keep your grandma’s memory sharp and help her work through feelings. In addition, sharing memories with you will make your grandma proud and happy.

Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
