The holiday season is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, yet for the elderly it can become one of the most depressing times. Loss of mobility, independence, family and friends can contribute to the holiday season not being the same as it once was. Traditions may not be upheld because of physical restrictions and the sense of loss is magnified during such an important month.
Fortunately, there is a way to beat the holiday blues. With Celestial Care private duty nursing, our clients are able to overcome their physical restrictions and spend the holidays with loved ones. Our RNs, LPNs and CNAs work around the clock during the holidays and give the gift of celebration to our clients. They care for our clients during family and religious functions and help the clients overcome the compromise between their health and their traditions. So, don’t give up hope on holiday traditions and make this a happy holiday season with Celestial Care!
Happy holidays from everyone at Celestial Care!
