Show Thanks for Your Beloved Senior This Holiday SeasonNovember 16, 2017 | Chateau Brickyard
The holidays are a stressful time of year for all. For seniors, the winter and holiday blues can trigger feelings of social isolation. How can you help your senior feel extra special this holiday season? Even if you can't visit them, you can find many ways to warm their hearts. Follow these tips for ideas.
Attend an Activity at Their Senior Living Community
At Chateau Brickyard, we try our best to plan a wide range of activities that help keep our seniors active, healthy, and happy. If you can, try attending a community event with them. Trust us--your senior will love the opportunity to brag about you to their friends.
Our December Activity Calendar features plenty of holiday activities you could share with your loved one, including Monday Family Night, our Christmas Cocktail Party, Egg Nog Social and more!
Have Loved Ones Send Their Favorite Memories
Family members who live far away often feel as if they can't offer the level of support they would like. However, there are plenty of things you can do from afar that will make a major impact on the life of your senior. Try writing down your favorite shared memories or sending pictures of big events they might not get to experience otherwise. Because Chateau Brickyard has a computer center for its residents, you can even send videos to your loved one. By involving them in whatever way you can, you'll make them feel loved and treasured.
Send Them Their Favorite Treat
Remember, it's the little things that mean the most. Whether it's sending their favorite dessert, their favorite flowers, or their favorite stationary, these small tokens of gratitude can let your loved one know you're thinking about them and make them feel appreciated.
