Christmas decorations and traditions

Two weeks from today is Christmas! It is so hard to believe. This year is flying by and I am now one of those individuals that say just how fast life is moving.

Speaking of just how fast, it is time, if you have not already, to decorate your senior’s home for the holidays. If you have them help, it could invoke memories that will last throughout the Christmas season. (The same can be said for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, too.)

The traditions that are relived each year are comforting to the older crowd just as they are for you and me! There is nothing more enjoyable for me than to look at each Christmas bauble

before it is placed on the tree and recall where it came from and what it represents. Christmas is a great time to invoke the good memories built over the years.

It is truly important to create an open atmosphere with your senior that allows him or her to participate in the decorating; sharing the traditions that they followed when they were younger and perhaps even following some of those traditions for the sake of the senior. When you do this, it just proves time after time that you understand that With Age Comes Respect and that you embrace that idea!
