Tis the season for festive senior living holidays and events are happening nearby! So what exactly is going on in Central Florida this December? North Star Senior Advisors would love to share this website full of holiday concerts, tree ceremonies, and much more for seniors and their whole family to enjoy in Orlando! Being with family is very important to us and what better way to get together than during the holidays when there is so much to do! When visiting with mom, dad, grandpa or grandma during the holidays, it is also a good idea to pay a little more attention to their health. Remaining in tune with any minor change in their mental or physical health is beneficial because catching even a slight change in behavior early on can better prepare for different senior living options if needed.
A couple things should be noted for seniors who need a little assistance getting around town during these festive activities. Walking can be difficult for those with mobility issues, but several of these events, such as the concerts are wheelchair accessible. Since some of these events are centered around traveling by foot, ensure your walker, cane or wheelchair is with you at all times. Exercising is what the body needs at any age, so having to walk a little extra can be good every now and then. Also, don’t forget if you are leaving an assisted living facility to enjoy these events, make sure to let the facility know ahead of time when your loved one is leaving, so their medications are prepared in advance. Assisted living allows residents to leave at any time and encourages families to bring their loved ones to celebrations and events as long as they are notified of the times.
Whether you’re attending a concert, lighting ceremony, or even the Jingle Bell Run, there is something for everyone to enjoy! We encourage you to participate in local senior living activities in your area for a fun filled night with the family. There really is no time like family time on the holidays.
If you are interested in finding a senior living community during the holidays or after, please call a senior advisor today at (407) 796-1582. North Star Senior Advisors sincerely wishes you peace and happiness along with a wonderful holiday season!
