Prior to the pandemic, many people had access to their grandparents through a range of activities such as gift-giving, card-giving, or visiting grandparents that may live in nursing homes. We here at Acorn Stairlifts wanted to provide you some creative ways to still connect and be closer than ever to your loved ones who may feel forgotten. Sometimes we forget how important and special our grandparents are. Our grandparents are our family and they will not be around forever. We need to cherish the moments we have with them and create lifelong memories. Now is the time we should all appreciate and express our love to our grandparents through kind actions. Technology has made it relatively easy to use tools to help connect with many generations. Let’s explore a few of these ideas to connect with your grandparents today!   

                                                                    How to Connect with Grandparents  

  • Video chatting is wonderful, and there are a million ways to do it like What’s App, Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, but you also must be available at the right time and ready to talk. A fun alternative is to download the brilliant Marco Polo app and exchange video postcards.  

  • Connect with EldersIf you have some extra time on your hands, revive the lost art of letter-writing and write a message to your grandparents by hand rather than over email.  

  • Connect to your grandparents on a deeper level by spending time with them by watching movies or your favorite shows through video chat. Try having dinner or sit down to hear stories that advocate your grandparent's past strength, information, and guidance.   

 

Our Grandparents love us; they have seen all kinds of things and lived a lot, through all that living it is not surprising that they learned a thing or two. They have so much to pass down and we should take some time to listen. We want to continue. It is the thought that counts, so make sure your grandparents know that you are thinking of them.
