Remember holidays can sometimes be very difficult and depressing especially for the elderly. Plan fun activities that revolve around family, friends and love.

 

Many Easter celebrations involve nonreligious traditions that include Easter bunnies, egg hunts, candy baskets and toys. Many seniors would enjoy going to church services and having Easter dinner with family, also making crafts and baskets for their grandchildren.

 

Easter lilies are beautiful and are symbols of hope. Planting seeds and other flowers are also a wonderful gifts and traditions and represent a new life. As your loved one transitions through different stages of life, it could be a great time to start a new tradition with them.

 

 Plan fun activities that revolve around family, friends and love. Take time to visit and be with each other. Share old memories and make new ones together. Celebrate Springtime and make this holiday a special one.
