Schedule a Visit Today! Christmas tree decorated with red and gold ornaments.

The holiday season is in full swing. There’s excitement in the air, holiday cards are arriving, and decorations are showing up everywhere. If this is your first year taking in the holiday season in your new assisted living home, you might be surprised how much more exciting and enjoyable they can be with new friends and neighbors. 

Most senior living communities offer a variety of opportunities for engagement, fun, and festivities throughout the holiday season. The best part? There’s even less you’ll need to worry about. You won’t have to get out a ladder to hang the lights outside. You won’t need to worry about planning, execution, or cleanup for holiday gatherings. You won’t need to worry about keeping icy sidewalks clear and you don’t even need to worry about driving on potentially-treacherous roads.  In assisted living communities, you get to enjoy all the great parts of the holiday season with none of the stress.

Get The Most Out Of The Holidays This Year

There are many ways to enjoy life to the fullest this year, especially at Bellaire at Devonshire. 

  1. Check the activities calendar. Bellaire at Devonshire has a full activities calendar each month of the year, but especially so during the holiday season. Be sure to print a copy of the activities calendar to stay up-to-date on happenings around the community. Make note of events that you think you’d love in your own calendar so you don’t miss out.
  2. Catch a holiday show. Whether you want to watch a local school play, holiday concert, go to the ballet, or catch a live outdoor performance, there are plenty of these magical events going on around the holiday season. Check your community’s transportation schedule to be sure you have a safe, reliable way to get to and from these local events. 
  3. Host loved ones. The holidays are all about spending more time with friends and family. Why not host a dinner party? If your living space is large enough, you could host in your own apartment, but many senior living communities also provide private dining rooms for residents wishing to host dinners for family and friends. Check in with your community to confirm availability and reserve your day! There’s nothing like enjoying a wonderful meal with loved ones during the holiday season.
  4. Try a new store. Find your sense of adventure and go exploring in your local area to shop small businesses that might be new or that you’ve never been to before. You’ll be sure to have a great time browsing and may even find some one-of-a-kind gifts for those special people in your life. Make a day of it. Invite a loved one to explore with you, grab coffee or brunch together before starting your shopping excursion. There’s nothing quite like shopping with good company to get you into the holiday spirit. 
  5. Spread the joy. Don’t forget your neighbors. In assisted living, new neighbors often become new friends. If you enjoy baking, spread the holiday cheer by baking some delicious treats for your new neighbors. If baking isn’t your forte, try making some personalized holiday decor or even some fun “white elephant” gifts that are sure to generate smiles all around.
