Help them communicate with their family and friends virtually
There’s a lot to be thankful for this time of year – especially loved ones. Although it might not be reasonable to spend time with each other in-person, there are still many things you can do to help your senior clients feel as though they aren’t missing out on all the fun.
Thanks to all the virtual forms of communication that have been especially popular this year, there are many opportunities for your senior clients to communicate with family and friends face-to-face.
Whether using Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, or another form of virtual communication, seniors can join in on family holiday parties or even just catch up one-on-one.
There’s nothing less lonely than spending a holiday by yourself. It’s important that you’re keeping them company and helping them to stay in touch with others at the same time.
Share a thoughtful gift
Everyone likes to receive thoughtful gifts. In fact, it’s even one of the five love languages.
While it doesn’t have to be anything big, sharing small gifts with your clients is a very genuine way to form a stronger bond, and overall, it’s just nice to receive when clients otherwise might not be getting any.
It doesn’t have to be anything extensive to show that you care. Here are a few ideas, but feel free to come up with your own. When you have a personal bond with someone, you know them best and what would make them the happiest. You can even make something by hand – those gifts always go over well.
