The holidays bring to mind those less fortunate and many schools, churches and other community organizations volunteer to provide a special gift to children in need this time of year. But seniors can often face isolation or depression over Christmas and many would benefit from a little extra attention during a sometimes difficult season.
Whether it’s a reminder of loved ones who have passed or a loss of independence, the holiday season can be a melancholy time for older adults. That’s why programs like Be a Santa to a Senior are so important. The campaign, sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care, started 6 years ago across North America and has distributed more than a million anonymous Christmas gifts to seniors.
