For so many of us, Dad is our best friend, mentor, and biggest supporter. It’s only natural we look forward to celebrating his special day all year long. Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 18th, which has us thinking about gift ideas. Puzzles, audiobooks, and group outings are all fine options. But whether Dad is active or prefers to take it easy, don’t forget to give the gift of Father’s Day senior home care. At Advanced Care Home Services, we understand the important balance between assistance and independence that is needed throughout our lives.
When it comes to Father’s Day, I will remember my dad for both being there to nurture me and also for the times he gave me on my own to cultivate my own interests and to nurture my own spirit.
