Celebrating the Holidays with In Home Senior Care
The fireplaces are blazing and the extra blankets are pulled out. There is a chance for cold weather and precipitation nearly every day. It’s officially the time of year for winter and the festive holidays that accompany the season. There is just a little over week until Christmas and many are feeling the pressure to purchase just the right gifts and hope to not forget to show that special someone how much we care.
This is the time of year when it’s important to realize that it’s the gift of memories, not trinkets, that matters most. It’s time to spend time with those we hold dearest in our hearts and show them how important they are.
If an elderly loved one is unable to leave their home due to mobility issues or weather, it would be a memorable gift to show up at their door with Christmas carols and holiday cheer. A home-cooked meal and fresh cookies are sure to bring a festive mood to any home. What better way to bring a smile to a loved one’s face than to actually see them in person.
If a senior loved one lives far away and they are active on social media, creating an family page on a site like Facebook an include all family members near and far, will help to bring everyone together. On this private page, photos of the festivities around the country or globe can be posted for all in the family to view. Comments and family stories can be shared and enjoyed so that everyone in the family can feel included in such a special holiday.
This year can be the year we set aside time to visit the ones we love. Take the time to share our lives with them. Take them out for dinner from time to time. Share a laugh over a favorite card game. Attend the theater or go to the movies with a senior loved one. While it’s been said time and time again, it’s not the dollars spent that count; it’s the time shared together.
