The holidays can be a joyful season but they can be a difficult time of year too, especially for older seniors. Many older seniors have outlived their spouses and friends. They may live alone and not have family or their family may live in another state. Or, they may have difficulty getting out of the house to participate in activities. Sadly, these older folks can become easily depressed.
Fortunately, there are ways to help seniors beat the holidays blues. Sometimes it as simple as visiting an older loved one with cookies in hand to chat about pleasant past holiday memories. Or providing transportation and companionship for a church holiday service. For more ways to help seniors enjoy the holiday season, click on the following link.
