Help a Senior Citizen to Enjoy Christmas

• Christmas is probably a time to spread and receive joy and love. You spend time with family and friends enjoying good food, gift exchanges and making happy new memories. • Unfortunately, for some people Christmas is a time of sadness. Many senior citizens who live in retirement communities or who live in homes of their own, do not have many relatives or friends to celebrate the holidays with them.

Imperial Club provide the right amount of personal care to allow for a healthy and active lifestyle-all in a wonderfully caring environment. Â If searching for assisted living in Hallandale , Hollywood, or North Miami, look no further than Imperial Club.

• On this day, open the doors of your heart and your home to an elderly neighbor. We all know someone in the neighborhood who lives alone and does his/her own chores. Such people do not cook festive meals because there is no one to share it with. Make extra room on the dinner table and make them feel a part of the family.

• Help a senior citizen in your neighborhood to decorate for Christmas. Offer to help your neighbor put up his Christmas tree. If he needs help purchasing a Christmas tree, you can take him to a local tree farm or even pick out a beautiful tree for him. Spend an afternoon decorating your neighbor's house so that he can enjoy the season with a fully decorated house.

• Around Christmas there are a lot of community functions or plays in children's schools. Ask if he/she would accompany you to such a function. This way they would get a chance to get out of the house and get in the holiday mood. Seeing lights and listening to music will lift their spirits .

• Determine if a nursing home accepts Christmas gifts for residents who do not have family. They will often have a list of items that the residents need. Create a gift basket with these items. Try to think of a fun gift as well that you can include in their holiday basket. Do not buy candy and other treats without checking with the community's staff. Some residents have diabetes and other health conditions and can only eat certain treats .

• Go Christmas caroling at a local continuing care community. Take your children with you as well. Children can bring a smile to the faces of older individuals who are feeling lonely at Christmas time. • Sing your favorite holiday songs as you walk up and down the halls of the retirement community. Encourage the residents to sing along.

• Have family members sit and talk with them to let them know how much they are loved. Hang stockings in their room of the family and friends that will be spending Christmas with them. • Fill their stocking with their favorite treats, such as a favorite perfume, cologne, or a special piece of jewelry. • Your loved one may want to give gifts to their friends. Help your love one make gift bags for their friends.
