Mother's Day is the time to show your mom some serious love. But how? Most of us love flowers and chocolate. So, consider getting mom a little of both. What we really treasure, though, is the priceless gift of time and conversation. And there are few things more important to talk about than your mom's health. So here are a few priceless gifts for mom on her special day:
- Talk to your mom about getting the preventive care services she needs. She should get regular pap tests, pelvic exams and breast exams. If she's over 60, she should get a shingles vaccine. Medicare and most insurance cover them in full.
These are important conversations. Most of us know we should talk to our mothers about their health, but we never quite get around to having the actual conversation. Why not use Mother's Day as a reason to get serious about your mom's health? Just talking to your mom about these issues can be healthy for her.
