Ready for food, family, and fun? The holidays are a time when family gathers, perhaps one of the only times throughout the year. As we approach the holiday season, it's a good time to think about what this may mean for older loved ones. Sure, they will love seeing the grandkids run around and dig into the apple pie, but it also may be difficult. Are they declining? Are they recovering from a surgery or procedure?
This may be a time where generations can sit and discuss important topics like estate planning, housing options if a change needs to happen, or cognitive abilities.
Be sure to take the opportunity to check on how your aging loved ones are doing this holiday season.
