Mother’s Day is just one of those holidays that we find endearing. After all, what would life be like without the warmth, love and compassion of a mother? And what makes it even more significant is that Mother’s Day only comes once a year.
So how do you make this day as special as the woman it’s supposed to celebrate? Those of us here at Freedom Home Care found a few ideas that will help you do just that.
Take Her to the Show
Does your loved one like movies? Mystery? Romance? Science Fiction? Why not grab a couple of tickets to your local theatre. With a little planning in advance, you can find great deals online for whatever genre she prefers. Invite siblings and grandchildren along for a matinee and make it a family affair.
What woman doesn’t love to shop? And a shopping spree for mom doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. Visit a book store or your neighborhood flea market and let her pick out a novel or two or maybe some fresh fruits and vegetables. These are often places you can find some really good bargains. Not to mention a perfect opportunity for moms to spend some quality with the ones they love.
Prepare a Homemade Meal
Nothing says “I love You” like a home cooked meal. Find her favorite recipe and maybe even add a little dessert. If you’re not sure, be sure to check with your loved one for any dietary restrictions. Warm up your senior’s heart with a delicious meal cooked up for a special occasion.
Take a Painting Class
If your mom is into the arts, then she’ll love Painting with a Twist! These fun, group sessions are designed to bring out the creativity in artists of all levels. And these aren’t just fun art classes. Enjoy sipping your favorite bottle of wine, while getting step-by-step instructions from local artists.
Visit a Botanical Garden
What we’ve found here at Freedom Home Care is that many older loved ones enjoy the quiet bliss of a being in a garden. And The Chicago Botanical Garden isn’t just a place to sightsee a collection of 27 different flowers, green houses and natural areas, it’s also a luscious 385 acre living museum and science center. The Chinese Botanical Garden is a perfect Mothers’ Day treat for the woman who has everything.
