The holiday season is a time of joy for most people. Often, it includes reminiscing about childhood years and the nostalgia over years gone by. You might remember dressing up in your Sunday best to go to Grandma’s house where Uncle Bert would tell silly jokes. Maybe your Mom and Dad were the hosts, and everyone came to your house for food, fun, and family time. Just because Mom is in a nursing home, or your parents have moved to a retirement community, does not mean you cannot still enjoy family festivities.
Make the holidays even brighter by bringing Mom and Dad home for the holidays. Preparing and planning for all the meals and family while caring for your loved one may seem overwhelming. The home care professionals at Home Instead Senior Care can step in to help. We support families and their loved ones with a variety of services on a regular or as-needed basis.
