Recipe for a Happy Family Holiday – No Shopping or Special Skills Needed

Recipe for a Happy Family Holiday – No Shopping or Special Skills Needed

As family caregivers, our love and devotion to our senior loved ones shows through in our actions every day.

As we complete each of our caregiving activities day in and day out, we show our commitment to improving the quality of life for our loved ones.

Yes, our caring shows.

We may be driving to the doctor, doing the laundry, cooking a meal or giving a bath to our senior or doing it all from soup to nuts! We may be the glue that helps hold our loved ones lives together.

It is during the holidays that we can take a step back and bask in the glow of the knowledge that what we do is making a difference! We are special!

During the holidays we get the opportunity to reconnect with other family members, share the load a little and hopefully take a much needed break.

Special Recipe for Your Holiday Menuseniors grandchildren holiday

As we head into the thick of this year’s holiday season, we would like to share with you a little reminder of the importance of our families and making memories every step of the way while remembering the bygone times.

We can use the season to bring some joy into our senior loved ones’ lives through memories and reminiscing activities.

As we get caught up in planning everything we need to do — all the shopping, cooking, visiting, caregiving and the rest that is on the agenda — we found one more recipe for you. Not something to cook but a reminder to cook up the holiday that we want and for which we often wish.
