Wife Appreciation Day is observed each year on the third Sunday in September.
This year, it falls on September 17th. The day provides us with an opportunity to acknowledge and thank the older women in our family for the important role they play in our lives.
What Does Wife Appreciation Day Mean?
This special day gives us a chance to reflect on how blessed we are. It encourages us to pause and reflect on just how much the senior women in our families do for us.
And when we do so, we realize that what older women do for their families is nothing short of incredible.
Think about the older women in your own life. Whether it’s your mother, grandmother, or wife, it’s probably pretty obvious how much she’s contributed to the family’s happiness and welfare. And to keeping the family connected and engaged through all of life’s transitions.
From Wives to Grandmothers to Caregivers
As wives, these women have done whatever is necessary to raise children, work outside the home, and tend to their family’s needs with love and devotion. They made sure that their children had what they needed to thrive.
As they grew older, these mothers became grandmothers who never stopped giving of themselves. Most never stopped devoting their time to attend to and fulfill the needs of others. As many became caregivers to their spouse or parent, they expanded their role and continued to care for the loved ones in their lives.
The senior women in our lives deserve nothing but the best as they grow older.
Expressing Appreciation at Sunrise Senior Living
How can we express our appreciation?
The team at Sunrise encourages you to pay tribute to the constantly shifting roles that older women have played—and continue to play—in every aspect of our lives. Start with a simple “thank you.” It can make a real difference in your older loved one’s life.
But don’t stop there. Take time to express your gratitude today and every day. Small gestures, such as a bouquet of flowers, a phone call or card, can be every bit as meaningful as grand ones.
Sunrise Can Help
Sometimes, the caregivers amongst us need help. Or just a short-term break to refresh and restore the body, mind and spirit.
Sunrise Respite Care services can be a solution. Your loved one can take a break while the person they provide hands-on care to stays with us for a few days or weeks. Respite guests receive the same support and services as our long-term residents.
Contact the Sunrise community closest to you to schedule an in-person visit to see firsthand what respite care at Sunrise Senior Living is all about.
