It is often hard to know what to get dad or grandad for Father’s Day. Why not give a gift that could truly make a difference? Could grandad or dad do with some extra help around the house? Perhaps he has a project he just needs a little help to finish? We have some great ideas to help you make Father’s Day a memorable occasion.
Find a new hobby
There are plenty of health benefits to be gained by learning a new skill or hobby. Mycare doesn’t just provide the traditional range of services. A support worker could help dad to be more confident with technology, or help with learning a new language or even help him find the perfect fishing spot! The services offered on Mycare are diverse meaning you are more likely to find someone that shares your dad’s passion. At Mycare we had an 80-year-old who was looking for someone to share in his passion of cars and to help to complete his car build. No problem! So, why not list a job today to connect dad with a like-minded individual.
Some extra help
Why not free up some of dad’s time finding someone to offer support. A little early support can prevent a crisis from happening later. Father’s Day may be a good time to introduce the idea of having a little extra help. Giving your dad the gift of a few hours extra help could be the way to remove the fear of needing support. You could hire a contractor on Mycare to help clean up the yard or do some household chores to show dad just how useful it might be to have another set of hands around the home.
Organise a surprise
Perhaps dad isn’t as independent as he used to be, and you aren’t living in the same city. You could connect with one of the contract workers on Mycare and surprise him with a fun adventure. Or you may want to buy tickets for him to watch his favourite team compete, but you don’t know how to get him there or have anyone to attend with him. You may find someone on Mycare who shares the same interest and is able to provide transport. Again, this could be a nice way to introduce dad or grandad to some extra support while satisfying your concern for their wellbeing.
