Having aging parents and aging in-laws, I can honestly tell you the one thing they miss and need most during this pandemic is human interaction with their families. It does not matter whether you do it in person, over Facetime, or by simply giving them a call. Most do not have much to look forward to on a daily basis. Most, like my parents, live a simple life. So, when my kids reach out to them, I know it makes their day.
My wife and I have always made time, and have encouraged our kids, to develop a relationship with their Grandparents. It is important to us for them to have that relationship. So often I hear of families who do not encourage their kids to reach out to their aging Grandparents and someday, those individuals will regret it when it is too late.
Make time to reach out to friends and family who are aging. Give them your undivided attention. Trust me. Your call/visit/Facetime will put a huge smile on their face and make their day.
