Our beloved seniors grew up in a time much different from our own in some ways. They were very independent and weren’t accustomed to asking for help. Instead, they were always the first to offer help in most circumstances. Because of this, they might even have a tough time in their senior years to ask for help when needed. It’s a difficult time for them when they need assistance but can’t bring themselves to ask.
This is a time when you can do a few little things that help them feel special, loved, needed and wanted. These are very essential for the emotional health of all human beings regardless of age, but even more so for seniors when their ability to care for themselves has started to decline. The list below will give you some ideas, and knowing your senior as well as you do, you can probably think of even more!
