Tacoma, WA has so much to offer senior care residents and their families on Mother’s Day and beyond!
Sunday brunch with Mom, some flowers and a card are all nice ways to show your mom you care. But what about inviting your mother to something different this year? Assisted Living Options has some local events to share with you, to help you discover Tacoma (and the surrounding area) and make this Mother’s Day 2013 a special one for your senior mom.
Treat your mom to a concert at the Capitol today, as the Olympia Flute Choir puts on a Mother’s day performance at 1:30 on Sunday, May 12. https://fortress.wa.gov/ga/apps/CampusEvents/default.aspx
If theater is more her style, consider taking your mom to the final performance of “The Rainmaker”, about a presented by the Lakewood Playhouse: “When ‘The Rainmaker’ comes to a drought-ridden farm, will he bring hope or a pocket full of empty dreams?” Sunday, May 12 at 2pm. http://www.lakewoodplayhouse.org/
The Tacoma Museum District is celebrating Mom with free admission to the Museum of Glass, the Tacoma Art Museum, and the Washington State History Museum. Spend the day engaged in the local art and history of the region: http://museumofglass.org/mothers-day
And not to forget our other older family members, there is another event this week to remind us all that seniors have an important voice in the community:
On Thursday, celebrate “Older Americans Month 2013 – Unleash the Power of Age” with Governor Jay Inslee as he reads a proclamation recognizing the importance of older citizens in our society. The audience can then walk with Gov. Inslee to the Tivoli fountain on the Capitol Campus as part of the event.

Spending time with older loved ones is the best way to show you care. By spending the day supporting the arts and other local groups, you help your older parent stay informed about current events and local culture. Even if you don’t get a chance to attend these events today, you might find a place to take your parent on another special day – a day spent with you!
