Dementia Assisted Living in Kansas City Helps Seniors Enjoy the Holidays

Dementia assisted living in Kansas City has found many effective ways to ensure residents have a happy holiday. Although the holiday season is a joyous time for many, often older adults find the season hectic, confusing, and even depressing. The state of seniors’ mental, physical and emotional health can impact not only their day-to-day lives but during the holidays it can be challenging to find ways to help them stay calm and experience joy and happiness. Here are several tips that Clover Care Home dementia assisted living in Kansas City has found that family members and staff can do to help their aging residents.

  1. Sharing Memories. A wonderful way for elderly adults to interact with people is to ask them to talk about special times in their lives. Many young people love to hear about what it was like when their older loved ones were younger, especially the more light-hearted, happier times.

  2. Private Moments. During the often hectic holiday activities, seniors may need a break from all the commotion and loud noise. Escort them to a quiet room where they can relax or take a nap. This can also be a great opportunity for one-on-one conversations.

  3. Thoughtfulness. Many seniors with memory loss lose their train of thought or get confused when talking about the past. Keep this in mind and be respectful and considerate as they reminisce. Don’t argue or contradict him or her, as this only increases agitation.

  4. Quality Time. You can learn a lot from elderly adult residents when you take the time to just be with them and listen to what they have to say, it’s meaningful to them, and goes a long way to validating their place in your life and makes them feel worthy.

  5. Monitoring. Dementia assisted living in Kansas City helps elderly adults by monitoring their medication intake and making sure they eat properly and get plenty of rest during the hectic holiday season. It’s not unusual for seniors to forget to eat or to become wrapped up in the festivities and get overstimulated. When you have their best interests in mind, you can tailor the activities to their particular condition.

There are many simple ways dementia assisted living in Kansas City can support an aging loved one and help them enjoy the holidays. For most, the holiday festivities bring feelings of joy, anticipation, and excitement. Spending time with friends and family, attending gatherings, and exchanging gifts all foster feelings of joy and goodwill. Whether you have an aging parent, friend, or neighbor, a little individual attention can help seniors enjoy the holidays.
