Now that we are in the rather intense Pesach(Passover) period, it is important to think about the role of our elderly parents/grandparents who are not up to par in the preparations….For those rather physically frail or mentally diminished with dementia, think of simple tasks for the festivities….for food preparations for the Passover Seder, they could be the “peeler,” the “singer”of old holiday songs while they are working or even the “story teller” of holidays gone by….They can be the “ear” for the gan(kindergarten) age children who have lots to say about their days at gan but perhaps their parents are too busy to listen….
Also when planning those holiday trips/tiyulim, don’t forget to think about easy perhaps even wheelchair accessible trails. The “good outdoors” is great for all ages…
Tip of the day….keep your seniors in mind in any way……A very Happy Passover Preparations to one and y’all….
