Michelle Ravanera | May 5th, 2024

Being a healthcare traveler often means adventure, new experiences, and the chance to make a real difference in people’s lives. But for many, it also means spending holidays like Father’s Day away from loved ones. This year, if you find yourself miles apart from your dad, don’t worry! Here are some ways to make him feel loved and appreciated even from a distance:

Plan a Virtual Celebration:

  • Video Call Brunch or Dinner: Set a time for a video call and whip up a delicious brunch or prepare your dad’s favorite meal at your place. It’s the next best thing to being together!
  • Virtual Games Night: Get the whole family involved in a fun online game night. Platforms like Jackbox.tv offer hilarious party games perfect for a virtual gathering.
  • Watch a Movie Together: Pick a movie you both love and use a service like Netflix Party to stream it simultaneously and chat while you watch.

Send a Heartfelt Care Package:

  • Gourmet Goodies: Put together a basket of his favorite snacks, drinks, and treats. You can even include a personalized coffee mug or travel tumbler.
  • Memories in a Box: Fill a box with photos of the two of you, handwritten letters expressing your love, and small mementos of your adventures together.
  • A Relaxing Retreat: Send him a spa gift certificate or a subscription box filled with bath products and relaxation tools.

Spread the Love on Social Media:

  • Post a Throwback Pic: Share a heartwarming photo of you and your dad with a loving message on Facebook or Instagram. Encourage others to celebrate their fathers too!
  • Create a Video Tribute: Put together a short video montage of pictures and clips showcasing your memories with your dad. Add a heartfelt message and share it online.

No Matter the Distance:

  • Pick Up the Phone: A simple phone call can go a long way. Let your dad know you’re thinking of him and catch up on each other’s lives.
  • Schedule a Future Visit: Even if you can’t be together this Father’s Day, plan a visit for the future. Mark it on your calendar and start looking forward to spending quality time together.

Remember: It’s the thought that counts. This Father’s Day, show your dad how much he means to you, even when miles separate you. From one healthcare traveler to another, we wish you a happy and heartwarming Father’s Day!
