The holidays have the ability to bring out the kid in all of us – if we let them. But all too often, we get so caught up in the hectic-ness of the season (and maybe some of our own ghosts of holidays past, present and future) that we wind up carrying around more baggage than St. Nicholas himself.
At Home Instead Senior Care, many of our CAREGivers have exchanged ideas with families about making the holidays fun and meaningful for every generation within the family. Whether it's through activities that older folks can enjoy with kids, taking time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us, or modifying beloved family traditions so that everyone can still partake – even if their abilities have changed. Here are just a few ways to ensure that that the joy of the season includes everyone.

Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
