Does your loved one seem to feel more blue than cheerful during the holidays? While this is not uncommon, it is definitely not something you want your loved one to have to deal with during the holiday season.
As a result, our in-home care providers at Qualicare North York want you to know ways to help your loved one start to feel the holiday spirit. Read on as we take a look.
Participate in Local Activities
You can check to see what activities are going on locally during the holiday season that could help your loved one get out and about during the season. Or if your children are in a school or church holiday play, bring your loved one along!
By having your loved one interacting with other people during the holiday season, it can help to combat loneliness, as well help spread holiday cheer! Plus, it might help to get your loved one more involved in the community in 2019.
Bring Out the Decorations
Help your loved one get into the holiday spirit by decorating his or her home for the holidays. There's really nothing like a tree lit up with sparkling lights to stir up good cheer.
Beyond decorating, partake in other holiday traditions, such as cookie decorating, baking and even volunteering, which can all help alleviate loneliness and improve mood.
Spend Quality Time Together
If possible, try to have your loved one over more often this holiday season. Whether it is having him or her over to sing holiday carols or even just cooking up a favorite meal, make sure to create memories with your loved one this holiday season!
