eniors often view moving during the holidays as an impediment because they want one last holiday at home before waiting for the New Year to move. However, those who try and hold off for “one more season” often experience unbearable loneliness and miss out on a sense of belonging. The reality is, it can be much more fun to be part of a community over the holidays, where rich bonds are formed, camaraderie is shared and top-level support is available specifically for seniors.
The Benefits of Living in a Retirement Community During the Holidays
This time of year, one of the most commonly asked questions during tours is, “What do senior living residents do over the holidays?” Treemont Retirement Community has a wide array of festivities for residents and their families to participate in, which are sure to delight and dazzle anyone.
For Halloween, Treemont’s Director of Maintenance, Don Ibanez, and our activities staff eagerly put up a haunted house and decorate the lobby to entertain and excite guests. From pumpkin painting to trick-or-treating with children in the neighboring community, friends and families gather for spooky-themed fun. The Lone Star 19-piece Swing Band performs for the Monster Mash Bash followed by our annual Halloween costume contest.
