People living in a senior living community may wonder about how they will celebrate the upcoming holidays. If this is your first year in a senior living home, then you may have wondered, can I celebrate the holidays in senior living? Making the transition to a new community in senior living can feel overwhelming, but there is no reason you can’t enjoy the holidays just as you always have. To learn more about celebrating the holidays in senior living, reach out to Clover Hill today at 201-485-4000.
1. Deck the Halls
As the festive song says, “deck the hall with boughs of holly.” This can be your first step in preparing to celebrate the holidays in a senior living community. You can enjoy putting up more than just holly. In fact, you can trim your living space with all the festive red, green, silver, gold, blue, and purple décor. As you see your place come to life with the sparkle and gleam of holiday cheer, it will put a smile on your face. Also, for all those who come inside your room, they will be greeted with the decorations of the holiday.
When residing in senior living, you will benefit from other people living nearby to help you with decorating. In fact, you may want to get ideas from friends about your decorations, or you may want a helping hand to hang up something difficult to do on your own. Either way, put on a little music to create the atmosphere and let the festivities begin!
2. Plan for Delicious Meals
Delicious, home-cooked meals always mark holidays. The meal is a key highlight of the season, from a golden-roasted turkey or honey-glazed ham to the buttery mashed potatoes and homemade rolls. Of course, you can’t forget about all the delightful pies, such as pumpkin, apple, and pecan, and the sweet aroma that fills the air when they are baking.
However, you may be wondering if you will be able to partake in any home-cooked meals now that you are in a senior living community. The answer is, “Yes.” If you are in a boutique-style senior living, you can have the benefit of a personalized chef and culinary services at your fingertips, making the holidays even more memorable.
3. Meet New Friends
Celebrating the holidays should be time spent with friends and loved ones. The benefit of residing in a senior community is that you’ll have your friends near you. In fact, they’ll be near enough that you won’t even have to leave home. This situation makes it convenient to get together and have a meal, play games, work on art together, or share memories. Being with friends enhances your mental health and helps people overcome loneliness. If you’re new to a senior living community, then you’ll have the opportunity to expand your circle and make new friends.
