Top Reasons Why the Holiday Season is a Great Time to Find the Perfect Senior Living Community

December 20, 2022

With the holiday season fast approaching, many individuals find themselves packing up the car and traveling to see all of their friends and family to enjoy some much needed quality time together. This may be the first time in a while that you have seen some of your older loved ones throughout the past year, and at Heather Glen Senior Living, we understand that sometimes it can be slightly alarming when you realize that their ability to care for themselves has been steadily declining. It’s for this reason that many senior living communities often see a greater number in phone calls during the months of December and January from concerned family members. 

While the holiday season might not seem like the ideal time to begin seriously looking at different senior living communities for your older loved ones, it actually could truly be a great time for you to visit our Heather Glen Senior Living community.

See the community clearly

Throughout the winter months and especially during the holiday season, senior living facilities typically have a full calendar event list with numerous activities that are fun for the whole family to enjoy. Each day throughout the month of December, our team at Heather Glen Senior Living will host a wide variety of activities to help our residents and their loved ones get in the holiday spirit such as holiday themed movie nights, holiday refreshment hours and so much more. This is also an ideal time to visit the senior living communities you have in mind for your older loved ones due to the fact that you could potentially visit with a number of families who are also in the community visiting their own loved ones. You’ll be able to hear from specific individuals about why they chose to put their trust in our team at Heather Glen Senior Living and how satisfied they are with the care and support their loved ones receive. 

Get ahead of the rush 

While senior living facilities do tend to see an uptick in the amount of calls they get during the month of December—more often than not, many family members wait until after the busy holiday season to truly take the next step to contact the senior living communities to set up tours or to get more information. This means that the months of January and February are some of the busiest times of the year for our team at Heather Glen Senior Living. When you make the decision to begin researching and looking at touring during the month of December, you are ensuring that you are getting a head start on the process and you won’t feel rushed to make a decision until you find the ideal community that would be perfect for your older loved one. 

Receive help from the whole family

With so many family members already in town for the holiday season, this ensures that you will have even more help finding the perfect senior living community for your older loved ones. You can all take turns looking up different communities and figuring out which ones you would all like to tour together. Being able to have all of your loved ones with you as you find the perfect senior living community can have a large positive impact on your decision making during this time.
