Holiday Tips from In-home Assistance for Elderly in Solana Beach
You may have noticed that the Christmas season can be tough for the seniors in your life. While the rest of the family is attending parties, baking seasonal treats, and decorating the house, seniors who can’t get around easily sometimes feel left out. In-home assistance for elderly in Solana Beach has some ideas for making your elderly loved ones the center of your Christmas celebration—as they should be!
Take the Party to Them
If your aging parents can’t make it out to holiday parties, then take the parties to them! Be careful to avoid a chaotic situation in the house, but a quiet, pleasant family gathering in a senior’s home is an event that they will remember for the rest of their life. And as you put up lights at your own house, remember to decorate theirs as well. It makes a senior feel great to know that their house is one of the brightest and cheeriest on the block!
Bring Santa to Life
The role of Santa Claus is a great one for seniors, particularly those who can’t get around easily any more. A costume and a fake beard are all that you need to transform your aging loved one into the star of the show. Or, if you prefer, Mrs.Claus can appear on behalf of her busy husband. With some help, even a senior suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s can distribute the Christmas gifts dressed as Santa. It may even create a new connection between the senior and the youngest members of the family.
