Pinehurst’s newest choice in rehabilitation and skilled nursing

When considering where to have your holiday get-together, think about someplace convenient to those who will be coming. It might be that your mom can’t house everyone, but she can host a meal and you all can look for hotels or housing close by. The care facility may also offer space that your family could use, and this would allow your grandmother to fully participate. Another option is to rent someplace that has gathering space, like a cabin in the mountains or a house at the beach. This would help establish a new tradition and you could still incorporate those favorite cookies, games, music, movies and books that made it special in the first place. Have each family member bring one thing they remember and, before you know it, it will all feel familiar. Keep in mind that the physical space is just one component. It is the togetherness that you will remember. It may take a little more effort to establish new routines, but time marches on and you and your family can embrace the change and pass the torch of gatekeeper to the next generation. The traditions established can be passed through the generations and they will transcend the changes life is sure to bring.
