Some say to age gracefully is to simply accept that you are getting older instead of fighting against it. Others say it’s about finding ways to make sure aging doesn’t stop you from living the life you want.

We think it's a bit of both.

Meaningful Ways to Celebrate Your Loved One on Veterans Day

To the brave men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces, we honor you and your families this Veterans Day… and every day. Veteran's Day is on November 11th. There are 9.2 million veterans age 65 and older, who are beyond deserving of recognition and appreciation for their service. Here are several purposeful ways to celebrate this special time with a veteran loved one.

Accompany the veteran to a Veterans Day parade, a luncheon or a national park.

Parades are usually the biggest and most colorful way to spend the day. Many restaurants offer a free meal for ex-service members. A National park is a fun place to enjoy nice fall weather. The parks have free entry on this day.

Enjoy a special family gathering at home.

Raise a flag, tell family stories, play games and sing patriotic songs. It’s okay for family and friends to ask your veteran loved one to tell his or her favorite military stories. This can be a touchy subject, but the key is to be thoughtful with your questions. Your loved one will say as much as he or she feels comfortable. Search here for a list of questions you can ask and questions you may want to hold off on asking.

Seek out a veteran at home.

Offering your time is a small sacrifice to pay, especially for someone who may not be able to get around as much. Loneliness is a growing concern among older adults that can lead to increased health risks. Companionship will add a meaningful emotional contact for you and the veteran. You may take over a home-cooked meal, help to mow the lawn, run errands, or simply sit with the veteran and enjoy a favorite movie or television show. Be familiar with the difference between Veterans Day (honoring those who served) and Memorial Day (honoring those who passed away while in the service). Avoid wishing a former service member “Happy Memorial Day,” when he or she is still very much with us.

 Visit a senior veteran in senior housing.

Senior living communities have a variety of special activities to celebrate Veterans Day. Many of the residents welcome the chance to socialize and share their experiences. Check out what’s happening at your neighborhood assisted living or other senior housing community. Be sure to wear your favorite red, white and blue and bring along a game, photos, or home-baked goodies.

Help a veteran check with the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) for any unclaimed benefits.

Aid and Attendance is one such financial benefit that is often overlooked. This benefit assists veterans 65 and older, or a surviving spouse to pay for care in the home or senior housing. If an older veteran is considering senior housing, you may contact a trusted senior living advisor with Allegro Senior Living for answers to basic VA benefits questions. Or, seek help from a VA-accredited veteran advocate known as a Veteran Service Officer (VSO). If time and distance don't allow you to spend time with a veteran loved one in person, consider reaching out in other ways:
  • Phone
  • Letter
  • Care package
  • Card
  • Photos
  • Email
  • Facetime
As we approach November 11, Veterans Day, taking ten minutes or ten hours to recognize how much someone who served means to you can make a positive difference in your loved one’s life, and yours too. What’s one way you can think of to honor a veteran this Veterans Day? Allegro Senior Living communities are busy preparing to honor veterans on Veterans Day.

5 Activities to Celebrate Grandparent’s Day

There is no doubt that grandparents have a unique relationship with their grandchildren. They often serve as a friend, mentor and your biggest fan throughout childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Grandparents can fill roles that parents may not. Whether it is guidance or entertainment, grandparents are always there to bring joy and perspective into our lives. Take time this year to celebrate and appreciate the grandparents or seniors in your life by planning one of these meaningful activities for Grandparent’s Day on September 8th. Cook something together: Perhaps your grandma or grandpa makes a favorite dish or dessert you love, but you have not taken the time to learn it for yourself.  Sometimes a recipe can only tell you so much. It's helpful to walk through the steps together and learn the secret tricks to make those chocolate chip cookies so delicious. Schedule a photo shoot together: It doesn’t have to be with an expensive photographer or camera but schedule time to capture photos of you with your grandma and/or grandpa. Pick a spot that has a nice background and ask another family member to play photographer for you. Better yet, print your photos and pair them with a nice frame to give to your loved ones or keep for yourself. Look through old photos: Pull out those old photo albums and look through them together with your grandparents. It’s fun to reminisce about old times and see your grandparents when they were much younger. If you have older pictures without labels or dates, make it a goal to write details on each photo. It’s helpful to document names and dates for future generations to come. Life story questions: It’s often easy to forget that your grandparents had a life before you were born. Sit down and ask them a few questions about what their life was like as a child or young adult. Who knows, you might just learn something. Here is a list of life story questions to get the conversation started. Create a family tree: Learning about your ancestors can be a very eye-opening experience. It can bring a greater sense of identity and pride in your family history. Grandparents are a wealth of knowledge available for building this family tree. You can also consult websites such as ancestory.com to find even more details of your family history. A family tree is a great memento to pass along to future generations or family members. We hope these ideas help you create memories with your grandparents this year. Enjoy spending time with them and celebrating the impact they make in your life.…
