Happy Fathers Day

Father’s Day is a special time to celebrate so many of the important men in our lives, but with a pandemic still in full swing, things may look a little different this year. That’s why we’ve pulled together some ideas to, well, come together during these unique circumstances. From virtual tours to a celebratory dinner at home, the possibilities are still endless!

Create a Quarantine Care Package

Care packages make anyone’s day, but as most of the country remains sheltered in place, they’re more important—and useful—than ever. From books and crossword puzzles to healthy snacks and beverages, care packages are easy to create, and personalizing it just for dad will surely mean the world to him. (Try to fill it with a little extra fun, so they have things to do with some of their added downtime!) 

Try Something New Together

Being stuck inside doesn’t mean we have to stop doing—or discovering. YouTube is an excellent resource for learning everything from painting and sculpting to woodworking. Looking for something different? Try a MasterClass like Modern Italian Cooking with Chef Massimo Bottura or Chess with world champion, Garry Kasparov. No matter what dad is into, you can be sure to find something all of you can learn and enjoy together for a Father’s Day like no other.

Make it a Meal to Remember

Gathering at their favorite restaurant may be off the table this year. However, meals at home can be just as exciting and offers a great way to stay on top of the healthy habits that combat malnutrition. So get everyone together and whip up one of dad’s most-loved meals! Or, if your dad recently returned home from the hospital, he may be eligible to receive home-delivered meals. Many Medicare Advantage plans offer meals as a benefit! These meals are specially designed to help older adults recover faster. 

Wherever your Father’s Day takes you, these tips will hopefully help you spend some much-needed quality time together as a family and make it one of the best celebrations yet.
