Can you smell the turkey roasting in the oven?
Can you smell the pumpkin pie coming from your family’s kitchen?
If the answer to these is yes, then that can only mean one thing…. You are going to have a great feast!
We all have memories of the holidays that creep into our minds and can put a little glimmer back on each of our faces. When I think of the holidays, I tend to think of my Grandma’s house. Everyone would gather there on Thanksgiving Day to come together as a family and have a meal together. Family members come from far and wide just to sit at Grandma’s kitchen table. The best stories and the best memories a child could ask for.
Now when I go home for the holidays, I see that my Grandma is getting older and my Mom and Dad are aging as well. I live away from them, but I stay constantly concerned with their well-being and am always calling my sisters to check on them since I cannot be there more often.
The holidays are a great time to check in on how Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa are doing. How’s there health? How do they get around? Are there a lot of obstacles in the way? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you should look to see if there are any solutions available to make their lives more livable.
At BlueStar SeniorTech, we offer many solutions to keep families Safe, Healthy and Connected. Below are some great solutions to consider for Mom and Dad this season:
