The holiday season is a time for joy, celebrating together, and making new memories. However, when someone you know, or yourself, moves into a retirement home, it can occasionally be hard to get into the holiday spirit. But don't fret; Livita encourages the holiday spirit in our residences. With a little creativity, you can bring the family to your doorstep, creating heartwarming celebrations that are just as special as those held in your own home.

Embrace the Magic of Your Senior Home

While it's natural to feel a sense of nostalgia for past holiday celebrations at home, it's important to embrace the magic that can be found in your independent senior home. These communities often go above and beyond to create a festive atmosphere, with beautiful decorations, music, and a general sense of warmth. However, it's important to also go the extra distance and ensure that your space and activities keep you or your loved one feeling good.

Decorate Your Space

Deck the halls with cherished decorations and ornaments from your own collection. Don't forget to involve your family; they can help you put up decorations and create a cozy, festive atmosphere in your room or apartment.

Virtual Celebrations

In today's digital age, connecting with family during the holidays is easier than ever. If your loved ones can't be physically present, consider hosting a virtual celebration. Set up a video call to enjoy the joy of opening presents together, sharing stories, and experiencing the holiday spirit through a screen.

Host a Holiday Gathering

Many senior homes have common areas that can be used for hosting gatherings. Coordinate with the staff to plan a holiday get-together. Invite your family and friends to join you at your senior home in Barrie for a special celebration. You can enjoy a festive meal, play games, and exchange gifts while creating beautiful memories.

Share Your Traditions

The holidays are an excellent time to share your family's unique traditions and stories with your fellow residents and their families. Organize a storytelling session or a group activity where everyone can share their favourite holiday memories.

Volunteer and Give Back

Consider participating in a charity drive or organizing a small fundraising event with the help of your family. Giving back can bring a sense of fulfilment and purpose to your holiday celebrations, plus, it's a great way to get everyone together.

Attend Senior Home Activities

Invite your family over to your retirement home to partake in some of the activities that your home is hosting! No matter what it is, it's a great way to get into the holiday spirit and keep the festivities going.

Personalized Gift Giving

Challenge your family by encouraging a personalized gift-giving exchange. A personal touch in your gifts conveys love and thoughtfulness, reinforcing the true spirit of the season. It can be the start of a great new tradition.

Explore Local Activities

If you are living in a vibrant community, invite your family to venture out to explore local holiday activities. Attend parades, visit nearby light displays, or stroll through holiday markets with them.
