Ancestor Appreciation Day

Spend Time With Your Older Loved Ones Reminiscing During Ancestor Appreciation Day

September 27th is Ancestor Appreciation Day. Do you know who your relatives are beyond the past two generations? Most of us don’t, which leads to a terrific NJ elder care project you can do with your older relatives: glean all the information you can from your uncles, great-uncles, aunts, great-aunts, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. Look through old photos with them and label the photos. If you’re really ambitious, help create a scrapbook or ancestry log. While doing that, you’ll be sure to hear interesting and sometimes amazing stories about your relatives. As a bonus benefit, you’ll be spending time with your older relatives; they’ll feel appreciated and loved knowing someone cares to hear about the “old days.”
