Why You Should Throw A Birthday Party For Your Loved One

Birthday parties aren’t just for kids. Though, many people don’t consider it important for anyone past the age of 10.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider making a birthday party for your loved one.

Family Time

At Delmar Nursing and Rehabilitation, we place a high value on family. Family time is important for everyone and all the more so for seniors. A birthday party is an opportune time to get the family under one roof. Your loved one’s memorable day will take on much more meaning when shared with the family he or she built.


A birthday is a time to reflect on accomplishments and experiences. Your loved one likely has a rich history and much to share. But these stories seldom get expressed during routine, uneventful times. A birthday can be anything but that. It’s a time to celebrate their being, and what a better way to do that than by expressing interest in their unique life experiences.


Memories tie in to family time and fulfillment. You can bring along some older family pictures to the birthday party and give your loved one the pleasure of reliving some joyous memories. This can also bring them a sense of fulfillment as they take satisfaction in seeing how things have progressed.

Making a birthday party for your loved one has many benefits, and they’ll probably love it. So why not give it a shot?
