Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the important women in your lives with flowers, Sunday brunch and heartfelt cards, but this year may be a little different for many of you.
Here are some ideas for ways to make your moms, grandmas, aunts, sisters and friends feel special while you’re practicing social distancing.
- Snail mail - You may think this is outdated, and you may have to be creative and make a card at home if you don’t have one, but it will bring a smile to your mom or grandma.
- A long phone call - People love to hear your voice, and when isolated it can add great joy to their day.
- Send a Note – Residents of the Good Samaritan Society can receive notes and one picture using our Send a Note online messaging service.
- FaceTime – Each Good Samaritan Society community has an iPad. Call ahead and set up an appointment with mom or grandma for a Mother’s Day video call.
- Window visits – Stop by to see your loved one at their window. Create sweet signs that express your love and gratitude.
- Have a parade – If you and your siblings or friends live nearby, get everyone to decorate their cars and schedule a time to drive by your loved one’s home. Make sure to honk and bring the fun!
- Homemade gifts – this is your time to be creative and share your talent. Maybe even use your kids’ artwork as a special gift to send!
- Personal puzzle – Create a personalized puzzle through an online photo source and send it to her.
If you’re sending a gift to a Good Samaritan Society location, be sure to plan ahead and check on any guidelines for deliveries.
