With constant adapting and changing throughout the holidays, whether it’s cooking a new recipe, or changing the family gathering to outdoors, seniors sometimes find it the most difficult to keep up with the many activities happening.

The holiday season brings families back together to reunite, catch up, and recognize the need for assistance for older adults.
