Celebrating Mother’s Day: Honoring Mom After a Tough Year
This Mother’s Day will be a special occasion for many families across the country. The state of the pandemic this time last year meant that the safest way to come together for celebrations was to do so virtually. Now, thanks to the COVID-19 vaccine, many families can more safely visit with their senior parents in person. For some seniors, this Mother’s Day might be the first time they are seeing their children and grandchildren in over a year.
If you are unsure of whether it is safe for you to visit with your mom this year, we encourage you to read the latest CDC guidelines here. For many mothers, the presence of you and your family will be the most meaningful gift you can give this year. And if you’re brainstorming ways to make your reunion even more special, get inspired by this gift guide we put together for Mother’s Day.
For those who have parents living in an Era Living retirement community, we’d like to remind you that most of our communities are currently open to visitors. Residents in open communities can have up to four visitors at a time for indoor gatherings, and if you are planning a visit in your loved one’s apartment, you do not need to schedule ahead of time. For more details on visitation guidelines, please visit our full list here.
This Mother’s Day will be a joyous celebration for many. At Era Living, we are thrilled to be able to welcome families into most of our communities to help honor this important occasion. And we want to wish all moms a very happy and special Mother’s Day this May 9. You deserve it!
