Celebrating Mom: Thoughtful Ways Adult Children Can Make Mother’s Day Special

Mother’s Day – an occasion to celebrate the determination, resilience, and strength of our mothers, or whoever has filled this role, who have given us endless support as we navigate life.

For senior mothers, this day may have extra special meaning as they reflect on the shared memories as they have navigated motherhood throughout their lifetime. For some, this may also have additional significance as they watch their adult children step into motherhood.

Here are some heartfelt and meaningful ways adult children can make Mother’s Day extra special for their senior mothers:

Create a Memory Book

A memory book is a wonderful gift for a senior mom, as a means of documenting cherished memories. Having a memory book to keep with them filled with photos, notes, and memories is a wonderful gift that serves as a constant reminder of their families love and connection. This gift also has the added benefit of being easy to share with family and friends – as seniors age, they may have to make the transition to retirement living. Having a meaningful piece of home for your mom to bring with her as she navigates her aging journey is sure to make her feel special.

Book A Spa Day

Organizing a day of relaxation and pampering can be a splendid treat, but for those with limited mobility, bringing the spa home can be just as special. Arrange for a mobile spa that offers in-home treatments, or, if your mom resides in a retirement community, check if there are opportunities to make this happen in-house.

At Trico LivingWell, we have an in-house spa & salon that offers hairdressing, nail, sauna, and foot and hand care services. The best part? Our residents can bring family and friends to enjoy a day of pampering. To the salon!

Enjoy A Gourmet Meal Together

Many of us have fond memories of our mother cooking our favourite meal growing up – why not flip the script and treat mom to a delicious meal? As a part of the dining experience at Trico LivingWell, our culinary team offers private catered meals in our Wild Rose Private Dining Room. Our culinary team goes above and beyond to provide a delicious, visually stunning, nutritious feast for residents and their loved ones, taking allergies, dietary restrictions, and preferences into consideration.

Listening and Sharing

Spend time just talking and, more importantly, listening to her. Ask her to share stories from her youth, advice, and wisdom she values. Conversations like these are priceless and strengthen the bonds between you.

At Trico LivingWell, we are conveniently located on a 2-acre public park with ample green space and walking paths that are perfect for our residents and their loved ones to use while they chat. Additionally, we have a private guest suite that our resident’s loved ones can stay in while they are spending time with one another.

Give Your Mom The Gift Of Great Retirement Living at Trico LivingWell

Is your mom at the point in her aging journey where she could use a little extra help? At Trico LivingWell, we know that making the transition to retirement living can come with a variety of emotions. As a part of our care philosophy, we develop wellness plans for each resident alongside their family, friends, and care partners to address each resident’s needs, preferences, and level of assistance required to help support them in remaining independent for as long as possible.
