While the holidays are typically a time for joy, they can also be a time of stress, especially for seniors. The holidays can be very emotional time of year, and along with all the happiness of the season can come sadness. Holiday stress is particularity hard on them. The holidays can bring thoughts of loss and even feelings of being left out or being in the way. Seniors not only get lonely at the holidays, but the holidays can wreak havoc on their diets, and they can’t get around around as easily.
Shady Lane offers options in our Assisted Living for all of these stresses in a senior’s life. We not only have an activity calendar that offers exercise, music, socializing, and much more, but we also have an onsite dietitian to make sure everyone is getting a well balanced diet. Shady Lane has multiple common spaces that the residents can reserve for gathering with their families, making it more convenient for them and their families.
Sometimes accommodating to the senior is the way to go, making sure they are included, and feel loved.
