The holidays are not always a time of cheer and joy. Often, the holidays are the days in which most people will avoid due to the absence of a loved one or ones.

Our in-home care agency, A-1 Home Care, has worked with many senior patients who have a hard time getting through the holidays. It is our duty to make sure that our seniors are comfortable when it comes to the holidays, both physically and mentally. Often, our seniors’ loved ones come down to their home to spend some quality time.

Your loved one should not dread the holidays, or the holiday itself when it finally arrives. Here are some tips to cope with the holidays, coping with depression and stress, something that you can go through with your loved one as well if further assistance is needed (Mayo Clinic, 2014):

    1. Make plans ahead of time – understand that putting something off will only delay time. Make plans for the holidays. Your loved one deserves to be around loved ones.
    2. Acknowledge your feelings – it is okay to be sad or angry.
    3. Reach out – send a text, call, or ask someone to keep you company. Talk it out.
    4. Bake.
    5. Color.
    6. Say “no,” if something seems too overwhelming.
    7. Take a deep breath.

If you would like to hear further of our in-home and twenty-four hour services, including companion care, then do not hesitate to give our Malibu branch 310-657-8780 or our Santa Fe Springs headquarters 562-929-8400 a call.
