If you’re wondering how to celebrate a loved one’s birthday in a nursing home, the first question to ask is “What does the resident want?”
This advice comes from the website GoldenCarers.com, reminding us it’s a personal decision for the elderly and that it’s important they are involved in any planning. Do they like surprises? Or do they prefer quiet time with family?
Their article continues with good ideas on commemorating the day, depending on those preferences, including:
- Putting a Happy Birthday sign on their door so people will stop and give them birthday wishes all day
- Asking local school children to make birthday cards
- Inviting friends and family members to visit
John Dalli, a partner in the law firm Dalli & Marino, LLP offers this reminder to families: “Any visit with loved ones in a nursing home is a great opportunity to see how they are doing and if they are being cared for properly in a safe, responsive environment.”
