Mother's Day is just around the corner! This is the day when we dedicate all our time to our amazing mums or the special females in our lives and spoil them with our attention.

Here are some ideas for you and your client for Mother's Day - you can help with the activities and provide additional support to ensure that your client has a happy and comfortable Mother's Day!

  • Cooking or baking together is a great way to spend quality time together on Mother's Day. You can make her favourite dish or try a new recipe together! Cooking together not only allows you to spend time together but also creates an opportunity for your client to reminisce about past memories.

  • Watching a movie is a classic activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Let your client choose a movie that she will enjoy, and watch it together. You can also prepare some snacks to enjoy during the movie!

  • If the weather permits, going for a walk is a great way to spend time together on Mother’s Day. You can take a leisurely stroll through a park or go for a walk around the neighbourhood. If you prepare some sandwiches, snacks, and drinks, the walk can turn into a picnic! Why not head to a scenic location to enjoy it?

  • Walking is extremely good for the elderly as they can get the fresh air, get some exercise and socialise with others. Just make sure that they wear appropriate clothes! Wearing comfortable and weather-appropriate clothing help prevent falls, hypothermia, or overheating. Shoes with good support and non-slip soles also help prevent falls, which can be particularly dangerous for older adults. Wearing the right clothes can make a big difference in keeping your client safe and comfortable while enjoying the benefits of going for a walk.

  • Crafting is a fun and creative way to spend time together! One of the activities that most people absolutely love is making greeting cards. These cards save money and serve as a lovely keepsake allowing the elderly to keep in touch with their loved ones! Another popular craft is string art. It is versatile and can make something very simple to something highly decorative. It can be a fun activity for the elderly who used to knit but find it challenging to keep up with the stitches.

  • Games are a fun way to spend time together. You can play board games, card games, or even games on a tablet or computer. Playing games is very beneficial for the elderly with Dementia or Alzheimer's, as they stimulate the mind.

  • Taking your client out for lunch or dinner is a great way to celebrate Mother's Day. You can choose a restaurant that serves her favourite food, or try something new. This can bring back happy memories, ask your clients to share these memories and tell you her stories!

  • Listening to music is a relaxing and enjoyable activity. You can play her favourite songs or listen to some music from her favourite era. Let her choose the music, it will be so much fun to listen to stories and reminisce!

  • Looking through old photos or watching home videos can be a wonderful way to reminisce about your client's memories and share stories - grab a cup of tea, settle down on the sofa and plunge into happy memories!

As you can see, there are many things that can be done with your client on Mother's Day. Whatever you choose, the most important thing is to spend time together and create an enjoyable day. With a little creativity and planning, you can make Mother's Day a special day for your client and yourself.
