Ezra Home Care Wishes you a Compassionate Christmas

Happy Holidays from Ezra Home Care!With well wishes for a happy, healthy holiday season all around us, it is easy to "assume" that most of us will be enjoying an abundance of food and gifts, and laughing and talking with the ones we love care about.

But deep down, we understand that the holidays will not be so warm and happy for everybody.

Some family members are anxiously anticipating their first holiday visit to a senior in an Assisted Living Facility.  Some caregivers may be apprehensive about relying on relatives to help with a loved one’s personal care needs. Others may be surrounding a dear friend or family member in the hospital, or worrying about whether this will be Mom's last Christmas at home, or grieving a loss. Many seniors will be alone.

These poignant realities should not diminish the joy of the season for you and yours, nor should they take away from the pleasure of coming home or traveling to see a loved one far away. But wherever you gather, remember the seniors and caregivers in your family or community, and show them extra kindness and compassion during what can be a difficult season. Here are some affordable and thoughtful ideas for gifts for the elderly for this holiday season. Also remember that seniors have special needs for the holidays.

From all of us at Ezra Home Care, we wish you a very happy holiday season.
