The pandemic has complicated the ways in which loved ones can show their love for hospice patients on days like Valentine's Day, but here are a few ideas on how to spread kindness from a distance:
Send flowers, a card, or something that will make them smile.
If you can't be there for someone in person, write them a handwritten note or send a beautiful bouquet of flowers to brighten up their space. A stuffed animal for comfort never hurts, either.
If you're able to be in person, set up a special night of pampering, watching a movie, or doing an activity such as a puzzle or board game.
Spending quality time together and making memories is priceless.
Have time set aside for a FaceTime or Zoom call with your loved one.
If they're not able to set up the call by themselves, speak to their caregiver to see if you can arrange for some virtual quality time and conversation.
We hope these ideas inspire you to send some love to those who need it the most on days like Valentine's Day.
