When it comes to the holiday season, many people in independent living may find themselves unsure of what to expect. What can you do? What should you avoid? When it comes to our senior living community at Northfield, we encourage you to enjoy a higher quality of life and reach out when you need help. Make this holiday one that is memorable to you and your loved ones.
What This Holiday Season Could Mean for You
Many people who live in their traditional homes find the holidays difficult. It gets harder to do all of the things you used to do when the kids were little now. You have a lot of work to do to handle it all. That changes when it comes to independent living. You may find that now, you have a bit more of an opportunity to really enjoy the holiday season.
Focus on All You Can Do
Think about all that you can do in independent living now that you do not have to worry about things like making meals for yourself. You also do not have to worry about things like housekeeping or laundry. These things can be handled for you. That means you have more time to do the things you may have put off for the last few years. Here are some ideas:
- This year, write the holiday cards and a nice note with each one to family members.
- Do some decorating that makes your space enjoyable and festive. Dig out those Christmas relics you’ve had for so many years.
- Do a few crafts or make something to give as gifts to your loved ones. Make it something special they will treasure for years to come.
- Why not get out and do some shopping – with available transportation, you can now do this easily.
- Explore the community’s events and featured activities. Get involved in the area.
When it comes to finding a way to enjoy the holiday season, independent living may be exactly what you are looking for to make things a bit easier for you.
Welcome Your Family in to Visit or See Them
Independent living does not mean you cannot be a part of your loved one’s lives. It may mean you have more access to them. For some people, that may mean that you need to use video conferencing (depending on coronavirus restrictions). For others, it means you may be able to spend some time at a loved one’s home or welcome them into your own home.
The holiday season can be everything you want and need it to be. You can embrace a new type of holiday this year with new friends and community members who have become like family to you as well.
