Honoring Fatherhood in Senior Living

Why Father’s Day Matters in Senior Living?

In Senior Living, Father’s Day offers an opportunity to recognize and appreciate the wisdom, experiences, and life lessons that fathers have imparted throughout their journey. It serves as a reminder to cherish the moments shared with our fathers, creating cherished memories that transcend the physical boundaries of a senior living community. Father’s Day matters because it allows us to celebrate the men who have dedicated their lives to nurturing their families and making a positive impact on the world.

By honoring fatherhood in Senior Living, we not only express our gratitude but also affirm the importance of intergenerational connections. Father’s Day provides a platform for families, friends, and caregivers to come together and celebrate the bonds that transcend age and circumstances. It is a day to foster a sense of belonging and ensure that the fathers in Senior Living communities feel cherished, loved, and valued.

How can I plan a memorable Father’s Day in a Senior Living community?

When it comes to celebrating Father’s Day in a Senior Living community, thoughtful planning can make all the difference in creating a truly memorable experience. This is a day dedicated to showing appreciation for the fathers who have shaped our lives, and with some careful consideration, we can ensure that it becomes a cherished and joyous occasion for everyone involved.

First and foremost, it’s important to involve your loved one in the planning process. Take the time to sit down with your father and discuss what would make this day special for him. Consider his interests, hobbies, and preferences to tailor the celebration to his unique personality. Engaging him in the planning not only shows respect for his wishes but also reinforces his sense of autonomy and importance.

As you begin crafting the perfect Father’s Day celebration, think about the activities and experiences that would bring him the most joy. Perhaps he enjoys spending time outdoors, going for walks, or engaging in light exercise. In that case, plan a nature outing or organize a group activity in the community’s garden. If he has a particular passion or hobby, incorporate it into the day’s events. This could include arranging a painting session, a friendly game of cards, or even a music performance to showcase his talents.

In addition to tailored activities, consider the power of personalized gifts. These can range from simple handwritten cards expressing heartfelt messages to more elaborate creations that reflect his interests and memories. Consider creating a scrapbook of cherished family photos, a custom-made piece of artwork, or a personalized playlist of his favorite songs. These thoughtful gestures demonstrate your love and appreciation while also evoking nostalgia and creating lasting keepsakes.

Lastly, don’t underestimate the significance of quality time. Spending uninterrupted moments together allows for meaningful conversations, shared laughter, and the creation of new memories. Set aside dedicated time to sit and reminisce, sharing stories and anecdotes from the past. Encourage family and friends to join in the celebration, fostering a sense of community and connection.

By following these tips for planning a memorable Father’s Day in a Senior Living community, you can ensure that the day is filled with love, laughter, and genuine appreciation for the fathers who have touched our lives.

Term vs Perm: Which is right for you?

 If youve been thinking about life insurance, especially if you have family, loved ones, or anyone who depends on you financially, you might be curious about the different kinds of policies available. Which type is right for you?Essentially, you can look at two main categories of life insurance: term and permanent.Term insurance is a pay-as-you-go option that covers a specific amount of time, usually 20 years or fewer. Term insurance benefits are paid to your beneficiaries free of federal income taxes if you pass away during the coverage period, but theres no opportunity to build cash value.Permanent insurance, such as whole life or universal life, offers coverage for as long as you pay the premiums, and in addition to providing a tax-free death benefit, also offers a chance to build equity, or cash value, on a tax-deferred basis.When determining which type of insurance is appropriate for your needs, youll want to consider these factors: Cost  Term insurance is generally affordable for most people, which is why it may be particularly suitable for parents and young adults who may be at the beginning of their careers. Permanent insurance is typically more expensive, largely because it is meant to last for one's lifetime and some of the premiums go toward building cash value in the policy and paying for other features. Generally, the younger and healthier you are when you purchase permanent insurance, the lower your rates will be. Length of time insurance is needed  If you think you will only need life insurance for a certain period perhaps until your children are grown you might lean toward term insurance. If you feel the need for life insurance for other goals throughout your lifetime, for whatever reason you might have a special needs child, or perhaps you want to use your policy to help pay for retirement, or you wish to include the policy as part of your legacy and estate plans you may want to consider some type of permanent insurance. Investment preferences  You may have heard the phrase buy term and invest the difference. Essentially, this just means that an investor could purchase low-cost term insurance, and then invest the money that was saved by not getting permanent insurance. This can be a valuable strategy in some situations, but people often dont actually invest the difference. A permanent insurance policy, through the payment of premiums, may result in a steady buildup of cash value or continued contributions to the policys investment components. For many people, this discipline is helpful. Future insurability  If you have health issues, it could become difficult to get permanent insurance after youve reached the end of a term insurance policy. (Some term insurance policies do offer the opportunity to convert to permanent coverage, usually without the need for a medical exam.) You could avoid this potential problem by purchasing permanent insurance when you are still young and healthy.Ultimately, you will need to weigh the various factors involved in the permanent-versus-term decision. You also might benefit from consulting a financial professional, who can evaluate which type of insurance is most appropriate for your situation. But whether its term or permanent, make sure you have the coverage you need to protect yourself and your loved ones. Chad Choate III, AAMS828 3rd Avenue WestBradenton, FL 34205941-462-2445chad.chaote@edwardjones.com This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

How to choose a successor for your business

As a business owner, youve always got a lot to think about today  but what about tomorrow? Have you thought about the person you would like to see as your successor?If you havent, youre not alone. Of the business owners who have created a succession plan, about 70% have named a successor for their businesses and have taken measures to train and prepare this successor, according to a survey by Morning Consult, NEXT 360 Partners and Edward Jones. But this means that nearly a third of business owners have not taken this action, leaving a big gap in their succession plans.So, if you havent yet named a successor, you may want to start thinking about it. It may be helpful to ask yourself these questions: Should I look inside or outside? You could find a successor whos already working for you, or you could find someone from the outside. On one hand, an internal successor would already know how you operate and what you value as you run your business. But on the other hand, an external successor could bring a new point of view and a different set of skills, both of which might prove beneficial. Youll need to weigh both choices carefully. How prepared is a potential successor? Whether you decide on an internal or external candidate, youll want to be sure the person you choose is prepared to take over the business. Do they have management skills? Will they share your commitment to your businesss success? Will they be able to build strong relationships with your customers or other employees? Are they enthusiastic about the work involved? Youll want to evaluate all these types of factors in making your selection.  Are there potential family squabbles? If you would like a family member to become your successor, you may need to be careful about whom you choose and how you communicate your decision to the entire family. Even if it may make sense for one individual to take over the business, perhaps because theyre already involved in it and theyre interested in taking it over, it doesnt mean hurt feelings wont develop among other family members, who may feel they are somehow being cheated out of what they view as their share of a valuable inheritance. So, if you are convinced that youre making the right choice, explain your reasoning to all family members and let them know that youre also exploring other, tangible ways for them to share in your family wealth, possibly by leaving them other financial assets through your estate plans. How will my choice of a successor affect my finances? Passing the business to an heir, selling it to an existing employee or selling it to an outside buyer can yield vastly different results for you in terms of your personal finances. Youll need to consider the possible business transfer arrangements, such as a buy-sell agreement, to determine which one is in your best interests. In doing so, you may want to work with your financial advisor or a consultant with experience in selling or transferring a business.Choosing a successor is one of the most important decisions youll make  so, take your time, evaluate your options and work to reach a decision that works well for everyone involved.Chad Choate III, AAMS828 3rd Avenue WestBradenton, FL 34205941-462-2445chad.chaote@edwardjones.com   This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor. Edward Jones, Member SIPC
