Let Comfort Keepers® Victoria Inspire Your Family to Bring Comfort and Joy to the Seniors You Love this Holiday Season

Seniors Comfort and Joy | For many families, this holiday season will be unlike most they’ve celebrated before. However, mixing up the routine by introducing new ideas can be invigorating and enjoyable, especially when some of your favourite activities may not be possible this holiday season.

While it’s crucial to remember safety during the holidays, there are other methods to provide seniors with connection, purpose, and love – even if we can’t visit them in person.

These family-friendly activities are geared toward grandparents, aging parents, and elderly neighbours. Some are free or inexpensive, while others may require some planning, but all may be done together or separately to provide joy and create new memories. Some of these can be done in person for individuals who live in the same house, or activities that can be coordinated by a caregiver to ensure that everyone has a good time.

Others are meant to cheer up individuals who can’t get together in person. While some of our normal seasonal rituals may not be possible this year, there are still ways to enjoy the holidays with your family.
