Remember them during the holidays!
The holidays are meant to be shared with family and friends. Including elders throughout the holidays makes the season even more joyful. This holiday season visit a loved one living in a long-term care facility. Plan a family outing to a nursing home or invite a senior family member over for dinner. Seniors love visits from their friends and families. Including elders throughout the holidays makes the season even more joyful. A little mindfulness can go a long way. Coordinate a meal plan that is senior-friendly or homemade treats like muffins or cupcakes. Having a senior over can also be very helpful. Offer them options on what to help with and avoid assuming what their limitations may be. Inclusion helps seniors stay healthy and stress-free! The holidays can be a painful reminder of the people and places a senior might miss, but by being mindful, you can help them curb the holiday blues. We hope you enjoy this winter season from our team at OurSeniors.org. Happy Holidays!
