We wish all fathers and their families a special day this Sunday, and especially to those fathers living at nursing homes or in assisted living.
Some facilities suggest planning ahead for a special visit or an outing if possible. If you cannot be there in person, perhaps someone on staff can bring your special greeting to the resident.
While neckties may be traditional for some, it can be very meaningful to fathers separated from living with loved ones to have family photos. Consider putting together a collage, or a box of photos, and you can also include pictures of favorite foods, pets, sports, mementos, and places. For some residents, it may be helpful to add a short description to the back of the photo.
Again, our best wishes for a Happy Father’s Day.
