Keeping traditions alive when you’re no longer living with your family can be a difficult task. However, as a member of a senior nursing home community, you’ll find a brand new family to enjoy spending your holidays with, and it only takes a few simple steps to get to that point:
1. Do your own thing. Don’t worry if no one else feels like celebrating the holidays this year, and aim to drag people into your celebration “vibe” as much as possible. You’ll find some of them just need a little encouragement, as you ask them for help setting up the decorations, getting a Christmas tree or preparing cookies.
2. Read up on old traditions and remember the traditional celebrations that you were a part of during your youth and childhood. In many cases, you’ll meet people from different locations and walks of life at nursing homes in Denver, so if all of you chime in about the old traditions, that will certainly bring things alive once more.
3. Get your family involved and suggest to the other members that they do the same. Modern nursing homes in Denver are not traditional old people’s homes. They are in most cases luxurious, well-decorated and beautiful buildings that you can proudly present to your children and grandchildren – once you prepare all the Christmas decorations, of course.
