Title: Visiting the Elderly Loved Ones During the Holidays

How to Engage Your Elderly Loved Ones in the
Holiday Season?
The holiday season is fast approaching. This is a
wonderful time for fun, enjoyment, and family
bonding. The holidays can be special treats for
your senior loved ones and the time when they can
feel especially close to family as they reminisce
the holidays gone by. How will you help your
loved one get involved with the family on
holidays? It takes some steps and efforts. Take a
look at these useful yet fun tips, at-home care
workers, Arvada have shared to keep them engaged
while also having fun this Christmas season.
1. Visit Them or Take Them Home
Mother Teresa said, It is not how much you do,
but how much love you put in the doing. If your
loved one lives alone, far from your home, or
have trouble getting around, visit them for
holidays to make them feel loved and cared for.
Set the location for your aging parents or
grandparents to meet and spend some time together
if they dont have mobility issues. However,
bringing them to your place will give them a
chance to go outside their home and meet the
whole family. Bring up some chit-chat to speed on
the days since you have last connected. This is a
great way to combat old age loneliness during
2. Set Aside Tasks they can Handle
During the holiday season, make a special point
of reserving or creating tasks your senior loves
can partake in. For example, decorating and
baking can get them engaged while providing them
with a sense of purpose and usefulness.
3. Help them Use Technology to Socialize
There are oftentimes family members and friends
who live too far away to visit in person during
the holidays. Set up a simple tablet with
internet access for your loved ones so they can
use email and social media platforms to interact
with family via voice calls or video chats.
Encourage them to learn using the technology, so
if you cannot visit them at other times of the
year, both of you can have a chance to connect.
This way you can stay updated on their daily
happenings and health status.
4. Check Out Extra Assistance
Another great source of help for senior and the
rest of the family is having someone to help, it
may be a friend or a part-time caregiver. If you
are aware that you are going to be busier than
usual on the holiday, consider searching for
resources to provide additional care for your
aging loved ones. You can consider having a
respite carer, Arvada families can count on. This
way, your loved ones will get the help they need
while you will get some free time to spend it
with them.
Use these tips to have a great time with your
loved one during holidays. If your loved one
needs assistance with mobility or managing a
disease, you can consider having Arvada, CO,

with loads of work during holidays and your loved
one can spend quality time with family.
