In my previous post, I shared my internal conflict of whether to attend Thanksgiving with family members. I caved and ventured to my family home to be with my mom and aunt mostly because I wanted to break up their monotony. Honestly, I could have been projecting my own feeling of boredom! The risk was worth it to me: according to the CDC, “social isolation is associated with about a 50% increased risk of dementia and other serious medical conditions.” During this year, I may not be able to prevent The Covid from wrecking havoc but I can be the entertainment that my mom desperately needs.

I came across this article from Aging Care that lists ways for all of us to bring more connection into the lives of our elders these holidays. I hope you get inspired to reach out to a neighbor, friend or family member with some of these ideas.
