“You are already thinking about the weekend? It’s only Wednesday!” Is something no one has ever said.. and I mean ever. We all know the weekend is a glorious time and for those of us who have a bank holiday this Monday, it just got even better.
Bank holidays are just wonderful and the extended weekend can mean many things for different people, but it’s important to make the most out of this bonus day.
Now I know you could spend the day catching up on work, out on a walk or even having a duvet day, but why not make this day your time to visit a loved one suffering with dementia. We can all have our excuses as to why we don’t get round to visiting our family members as often as we should. But why not keep this bank holiday free to see your Mum, Aunt, Granddad or whoever it is going through a hard time or just feeling a bit lonely.
It’s easy to forget that the actions you choose can have an affect on those around when they may not let you know, but think of the joy and positivity it will bring your relative to spend time with you. Whether it’s an outing, a cup of tea or a family dinner, don’t let these moments slip a way and seize the opportunity while you can.
So whilst you’re at work and dreaming of this long weekend ahead, send a Nudgu Reminders to your loved and they can look forward to seeing you this bank holiday.
