- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
My grandparents are having a rough time. My 80 year old grandpa (poppa) is aging pretty quickly these days and cannot have his usual lifestyle of be it all, do it all. As a result, he’s depressed and my grandma is having a hard time with how much he’s changed. She doesn’t like to talk on the phone and I don’t live especially nearby, so I’m searching for some ideas to make them smile. Bees, can you help?

What about sending them handwritten letters and/or cards? It’s so nice to get something personal in the mail.
I’m sorry I don’t have a ton of ideas… it can be so hard to watch these changes in the people you love and not know how to help.

Older people like to receive mail. They recall the days when it was terribly exciting to see the mailman had left a delivery.
Can you send them something every day ( or at least twice a week)? It doesn’t even have o be anything that costs any money- a comic strip, a copy of a pic of you with them, a childhood memory.
It will give them something to look forward to.
Another idea would be gift subscription to Remonisce magazine
