Holidays For Seniors

If you aren’t yet aware, there are many more “holidays” than just the traditional ones we know such as Christmas, Passover, St Patrick’s Day and more.

So, I thought we should help seniors and their caregivers to have a little fun and celebrate some of these holidays that we think are of interest to older adults.

We’ll be adding more links for these holidays to give you ideas on gifts and/or how you can celebrate them with your senior loved ones so check back often!
